Abstract: Based on the National Migrant Population Surveillance Survey conducted in 2011 by the National Population and Family Planning Commission of China, this paper focuses on the married female migrants who live with preschool children of 3-6 years. Probity regression is conducted to estimate the impact of children's entrance to kindergarten on their mother's labor market participation outcomes, and propensity score matching (PSM) is used to control potential sample selection bias. Results show that about 40% of preschool migrant children could not be admitted into kindergartens. We also find that the low enrollment rate brings significant negative impact on their mothers' employment opportunity and restricts these women's labor-market participation.
Keywords: preschool education, married female migrants, labor market participation outcomes, propensity score matching
