Abstract: This dissertation studies questions in labor and family economics. It consists of three self contained chapters, that, as a common underlying theme, study how policy and institutions influence economic decisions made by individuals and families. In all three chapters I develop economic models that I use in combination with micro-data from different sources to address questions of high policy relevance. The topics I study in this dissertation, within the fields of labor and family economics, fall into two broad areas. The first area is the study of how aspects of divorce law shape married couples’ and divorced individuals’ decision-making and impact on their wellbeing. The second area is the analysis of labor markets and the evaluation of active labor market policies that are designed to help unemployed workers find jobs. Chapter 1 relates to the former, chapters 2 and 3 to the latter of these research areas.
