Risk-Sharing between and within Families

Econometrica, 1996, vol. 64, issue 2, 261-94
This paper uses the Panel Study of Income Dynamics to test whether risk-sharing is complete between or within American families. The tests accommodate wide variety in the configuration and availability of family data. The test results reject inter- as well as intra-family full risk-sharing even assuming that leisure is endogenous or that leisure and consumption are nonseparable.
