Unmet needs in formal care: kindling the spark for caregiving behavior

This paper studies if a situation of formal care unmet needs is a strong motivation for the onset of caregiving behavior, and if becoming caregiving is a compelling argument for leaving current job (in the presence/absence of formal care unmet needs). We use data from the Eurobarometer 67.3 for 18 European countries and estimate a three simultaneous equations model taking into account the potential endogeneity of labor participation and formal care unmet needs and assuming non-zero correlation among the error terms of the three equations.

A comparative study of stress and unmet needs in carers of South Asian and white adults with learning disabilities
