The authors examine the effects of male and female labor supply on household demands and present a simple and robust test for the separability of demands from labor supply. Using data on individual households from six years of the U.K. Family Expenditure Survey, they estimate a demand system for seven goods that includes hours and participation dummies as conditioning variables. Consumer Demand and Labor Supply (scanned out-of-print Elsevier book) for testing for separability of commodity demands from male and female labor supply on a single cross section Author: William Barnett. Separability between goods and leisure is rejected by the data. Labour supply is (bund to be a positive function of the wage rate. ver the last ten years there has been considerable interest in ^_xthe joint modelling of labour supply and commodity demands. Abbot and Ashenfelter () use a variety of models to estimate the joint demands for. We examine the effects of male and female labor supply on household demands and present a simple and robust test for the separability of commodity demands from labor supply. Using data on individual households from six years of the UK FES we estimate a demand system for seven goods which includes hours and participation dummies as conditioning variables.

Functional forms for labour supply and commodity demands with and without quantity restrictions, (). Testing separability of public consumption in household decisions, The effects of male and female labour supply on commodity demands,Author: David Aristei and Luca Pieroni. female leisure is considered as distinct from male leisure both with respect to commodity consumption and to its response to changes in household composition. Moreover, if male labour supply is predetermined because of rationing, the household's income will still be endogenous through its dependence on the female labour supply decision. plausible functional forms for commodity demand functions in the presence of quantity constraints in the labor market. Such functions, together with their unrationed counterparts, are essential for the analysis of cross-section or longitu- dinal data on labor supply and commodity demands in situations where some.
Downloadable! The Mirrlees Review recommends that commodity taxation should in general be uniform, but with some goods consumed in conjunction with labour supply (such as child care) left untaxed. This paper examines the validity of this claim in an optimal income tax framework. Contrary to the recommendation of the Review, our theoretical results imply that even if all goods other than the. The conditional approach allows for more exact tests of weak separability using more flexible functional forms than is possible when estimating an unconditional commodity demand-labor supply model.
