Labor Force Participation Elasticities of Women and Secondary Earners within Married Couples
Robert McClelland (au); Shannon Mock (au); Kevin Pieerce (au)
Labor supply elasticities are often used to evaluate the effect of changes in tax rates on the total hours worked in the economy. Historically, married women have tended to have larger labor supply elasticities than their spouses because they were the secondary earners in a couple. However, those elasticities have fallen sharply in recent decades -- a decline that has been attributed to greater labor force participation rates and increased career orientation among married women. Indeed, a growing share of wives earn more than their husbands, raising the question whether a personäó»s sex or relative earnings is the relevant factor affecting the sensitivity of participation to wage and tax rates. This study examines whether women or lower-earning spouses have larger labor supply elasticities. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
