The Impact of Children on Married Women's Labor Supply: Black-White Differentials Revisited
AbstractPrevious studies have documented that the depressing effect of children on labor supply is greater for white wives than for their black counterparts. The present paper examines the hypothesis that this difference by race is less pronounced in the highly educated segments of the population. Multinomial logit estimates of a labor supply model using data from the 1982 National Survey of Family Growth are consistent with the hypothesis.
