Working Papers from Tasmania - Department of Economics
This paper tests, using data from South Africa and Pakistan, two major implications of the unitary household model, namely, that (a) each individual pools the various components of her/his non labour earnings, and (b) men and women pool their non labour earnings between themselves. The study uses a three stage least squares procedure that, besides recognising the endogeneity of all the income variables, allows for simultaneity between all the income and expenditure equations.
