000030338 520__ $$9eng$$aGrandparents are regular providers of free child care. Similar to any  other form of child care, availability of grandparent-provided child care  affects fertility and labor market decisions of women positively. We find  that women in Germany, residing close to parents or in-laws are more  likely to have children and that as mothers they are more likely to hold a  regular part-or fulltime job. However, different from any other type of  child care, for individuals to enjoy grandparent-provided child care on a  regular basis, residence choices must coincide with those of parents or  in-laws. Thus while living close provides access to free child care, it  imposes costly spatial restrictions. We find that hourly wages of  mothers residing close to parents or in-laws are lower compared to  those residing further away, and having relatives taking care of ones'  children increases the probability of having to commute. We build a  general equilibrium model of residence choice, fertility decisions, and  female labor force participation that can account for the relationships  between grandparent-provided child care, fertility and female labor  market outcomes. We simulate our model to analyze how women's  decisions on residence, fertility, and labor force participation change  under distinct scenarios regarding availability of grandparent provided  childcare and different family policies.
