After a 4 year pause, we would like to introduce two new studies recently published in IES Occasional Papers series - Female Labor Force Participation and Childcare Policies authors of which are Barbara Pertold-Gebická and Daniel Hušek and Health Care Efficiency in the Czech Republic – Evidence for Inpatient Care by Jana Votápková and Pavlína Žílová. Both publications have been created in cooperation with the European Commission and deal with currently frequently discussed topics.
The first study mentioned above addresses the impact of maternity/parental leave on women´s employment in the Czech Republic and the related problem of collective childcare facilities for children under the age of 3 years. The authors compare the Czech Republic with other EU countries in this regard and conclude that the situation in the Czech Republic is at least unfavourable.
In the second publication the authors analyze the efficiency of inpatient health care in the Czech Republic and describe the factors important for its improvement. The study also deals with the relation of the efficiency of Czech hospitals and their capital needs and discusses the implementation of day care.
