Contents:

Author Info

  • Lina Song

Abstract

While the distribution of income among social groups attracts serious concern in China, resource allocation among members of households seems overlooked. Research on household issues has been dominated by the "unitary" model of household decision making, which treats all household members as if they behaved as one. Understanding how rights, responsibilities, and resources are allocated among household members can help policymakers to monitor how inequality among household members is changing.
