Bu çalışmada, 29 OECD ülkesinde enerji tüketimi ile kadın işsizliği arasındaki kısa ve uzun dönemli ilişki, 1991-2015 dönemine ait panel verileri kullanılarak araştırılmaktadır. Ampirik analiz için, Panel ARDL yöntemi ve Granger nedensellik testi kullanılmıştır. Analizler sonucunda, hem kısa dönemde hem de uzun dönemde enerji tüketimi anlamlı bir biçimde kadın işsizliğini negatif yönde etkilediği görülmüştür. Yani enerji tüketimi, kadın işsizlik oranı açısından negatif ve istatistiksel olarak anlamlı bir etkiye sahiptir. Ayrıca, Granger nedensellik testi sonucuna göre enerji tüketimi ile kadın işsizlik oranı arasında çift yönlü (bidirectional) bir nedensellik olduğu saptanmıştır.

In this study, the short- and long-term relationships between energy consumption and women's unemployment in 29 OECD countries are investigated using panel data for the period 1991-2015. For the empirical analysis, Panel ARDL method and Granger causality tests are used. The results of the analyses reveal that both short- and long-term energy consumptions have significant adverse effects on female unemployment. That is to say; energy consumption has a negative and statistically significant impact on the female unemployment rate. In addition, according to the Granger causality test result, it is found that there is bidirectional causality between energy consumption and female unemployment rate.
