Abstract

This paper provides estimates of gender specific demand systems related to the demand for market goods, household products and leisure. The estimated sharing rule has been obtained using a structural form approach. The estimates illustrate how the household structure and working conditions affect the exchange of resources between the couple's members. The paper further examines the implications related to the estimation of the cost of children based on collective models. Our framework identifies the child costs pertaining to the mother and the father.
