Abstract

This paper analyses how the Great Recession affected the gender disparity in material and social deprivation in Europe. We proposemultidimensional non-monetary indexes of absolute and relative (i.e. using peer comparisons) deprivationsestimated ondata fromthe European Quality of Life Surveyfor the waves2007 and 2011.We find that the Great Recession decreased gender disparityover all the dimensionsof deprivations. By applying aBlinder-Oaxaca decomposition, we estimate that this decline of gender gap has depended on a reduction of the difference in characteristicsbetween genders that has more than offsetan increase of gender discrimination.
