|Title:||Jobless, friendless and broke : what happens to different areas of life before and after unemployment?||Authors:||Powdthavee, Nattavudh.||Issue Date:||2012||Source:||Powdthavee, N. (2012). Jobless, Friendless and Broke: What Happens to Different Areas of Life Before and After Unemployment?. Economica, 79(315), 557-575.||Series/Report no.:||Economica||Abstract:||Using a nationally representative longitudinal dataset of the British people, this paper explores how different areas of a person’s life evolved before and after unemployment. There is evidence that unemployment is preceded, on average, by a year of dissatisfaction with one’s finance and job, for both genders. Having entered unemployment, men and women reported a significant and persistent drop in satisfaction with finance and social life, which perhaps explains why there is little overall hedonic adaptation to unemployment. This paper proposes a two-layer model to study leads and lags in life satisfaction to changes in employment status.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/98159
