Visiting Faculty Jeffrey Neilson to Give a CSDE Seminar this Fall

Posted: 8/14/2019 (CSDE Research)

CSDE is welcoming Jeffrey Neilson, Researcher at the Department of Economic History at Lund University, as a Visiting Affiliate for the 2019-2020 year. Neilson will share some of his research, which focuses on how men and women allocate their time between the household and labor market, during a CSDE Seminar this Fall. You can ask him more or say hello here!

Neilson looks at outcomes including the household division of labor and how it is impacted by parenthood, how working couples spend time together and invest time in their children, the division of paid labor, and caregiving responsibilities over the life course. Another research interest is sleep, including how it is influenced by work and family responsibilities. Neilson teaches courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels, covering topics such as family demography, economic change in post-war Sweden, the demographic transition, and family and work in an international perspective.
