investigates the effect of unemployment on men and women’s library and
information Science, in India. Using a harmonised database (ECHP), we
estimate the impact of declared unemployment on employees while taking
account of attrition and un observed individual heterogeneity. We find
sizable unemployment effects. Inmost of the countries, the wage penalty
represents from 4% to 9%, and appears to be even higher in the more
flexible economies. In certain countries we do not find any gender
differences. To explain the discrepancies between countries, we suggest
that labour market institutions such as unemployment benefits and
wage-setting institutions may be avenues of investigation
