Chapter 12. Gender Effects on Household Resource Allocation in Rural China
AbstractWhile the distribution of income among social groups attracts serious concern in China, resource allocation among members of households seems overlooked.

Understanding how rights, responsibilities, and resources are allocated among household members can help policymakers to monitor how inequality among household members is changing.
