Family labor supply, commuting time, and residential decisions: The case of the Tokyo Metropolitan Area
Journal of Housing Economics, 2011, vol. 20, issue 1, 49-63
In this paper, I build a model of family labor supply and residential choices that explicitly incorporates the full-time or part-time work decisions of married women. The model can explain why women's participation patterns in full-time and part-time work vary significantly in areas that are geographically close but differ in real estate prices. The model suggests that high commuting costs could be one of the main obstacles for women's full-time employment in places like the Tokyo Metropolitan Area.
