    Abstract

    Using data from the Japanese Panel Survey of Consumers (JPSC), this paper analyzes how the wage rates of married women are related to whether they take care of their and their husbands’ parents or not. We find that married women who earn higher wages tend not to take care of their own parents but instead make larger money transfers to them. These results suggest that the higher wages of married women induces the substitution of care giving for money transfers to parents, which may be attributed to the increase in the opportunity cost of care. On the other hand, we find that the high wages of these women are negatively related to their support of their husbands’ parents.
