Internal relations in unemployed families

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The relationships between the success of unemployed people in regaining a preferred job and their families decision making style are analyzed in the context of a recession in Israel during the years 1966-1967. Unemployed from families with high degrees of consultation suffered longer periods of idleness than their mates from nonconsultative families; and unemployed from families with high degrees of consultation were more successful than their counterparts in nonconsultative families in regaining employment in their former occupation. The results are explained in terms of the availability of information, the intrafamilial tendency for mutual support, institutional factors, and the nature of the decision making process.
