Abstract: We compare two options of integrating discrete working time choice of heterogenous households into a general equilibrium model. The first, known from the literature, produces household heterogeneity through a working time preference parameter. We contrast this with a model that directly incorporates a logit discrete-choice approach into a AGE framework. On the grounds of both calibration consistency and adequate accomodation of within-household interaction, we argue that the logit approach is preferable.
