Abstract: In this paper, we examine the the determinents of the evolution of male hours by years of schooling within the U.S. between the mid-1960s through the late 2000s. We quantify the extent to which changes in wages, changes in female labor supply, changes in the taxes and transfers, changes in the price of leisure, and changes in the price of home production explain changes in male hours within each skill group. Given the changes in both quantities and prices, we infer a common set of preference paramaters across the skill groups. We then perform counter-factuals about how hours would have evolved had the various determinents not changed.
