Female Labor Supply
Theory and Estimation
James P. Smith


This collection of original essays brings econometric theory to bear on the problem of estimating the labor force participation of women. Five scholars here examine, both theoretically and empirically, the determinants of women's wages in the market, the value of their home time, and the factors that affect their employment.

First published in 1980.
