Unemployment does not hit only individual workers, it affects their families as well. There has been increasing interest in household joblessness and the polarisation of work across households. The consequences of household joblessness on well-being can be dramatic. Jobless households have a high risk of poverty and household joblessness can affect the long-term outcomes of adults and children living in such households. The objective of this dissertation is to contribute to the understanding of household joblessness in Europe by analysing couples in which both partners are simultaneously without work. Using data from the European Community Household Panel, I focus on three areas, which have received little attention in the literature.
