Impact and outcomes

Their project ‘Hormones at work: The impact of (peri)menopause on women’s careers' uses microdata from Statistics Netherlands to study how experiencing menopausal symptoms influences the labour market and health outcomes of women in the years around menopause. The share of middle-aged working women has increased over the past decades. This implies that an increasing number of women experience a major biological transition during their working lives: the menopause. Although most women experience various types of physical and mental discomfort in the years around menopause, there is little knowledge about the impact of these symptoms on their careers.
