Mothers in the labor market in 2021

In 2021, 82% of mothers in Switzerland were economically active. This high level of labour market participation goes hand in hand with a large proportion of part-time work. After the birth of their first child, one in nine economically active mothers leaves the labour market and the proportion of part-time work doubles. In Switzerland, the proportion of mothers participating in the labour market is higher than the European average. These are some of the findings from the publication "Mothers in the labour market in 2021".
