Abstract

The paper analyses the impact of the German tax, social security and benefit system on the labour supply of married women. It is based on a comprehensive microsimulation model for individual income taxes, social security contributions and tranfers, and on a microeconometric labour supply model with endogenous labour force participation, wages and non-labour income. The model is estimated based on data for 22,201 households for the financial years 1984-1996 and it is used to assess the impact of recent tax-benefit reforms in Germany.
