Abstract

This paper estimates a collective model of labour supply on two-earner British couples (bhps [1997]). The results are as follows:?There is no « income pooling ». Women? labour supply depends on which of the partners receives income support.?Collective restrictions seem to fit better on British than French data.?The sex ratio, which is the usual distribution factor, does not seem to play a role in the negotiation process. This result leads us to question the relevance of the sex ratio as a measure of the external opportunities for remarriage.Classification JEL : D10, J22.
