In Search of Gender Bias in Household Resource Allocation in Rural China

Economics Series Working Papers from University of Oxford, Department of Economics

Abstract: This paper tests three hypotheses concerning intra-household resource allocation in rural China. First, whether increasing the women's bargaining power alters household expenditure patterns. Second, whether households allocate fewer resourced to daughters than to sons. Third, whether increasing the bargaining power of women reduces pro-boy discrimination.
