    [fre] L'offre de travail des femmes des exploitants agricoles "indépendants" : application sur données françaises par Catherine Benjamin, Hervé Guyomard et Michel Sollogoub Les femmes des exploitants agricoles effectuent, en matière d'allocation de leur temps de travail, un arbitrage entre travailler sur l'exploitation et/ou travailler hors de l'exploitation. Une spécificité dans leur comportement d'offre de travail apparaît dans le fait que la rémunération marginale de l'activité agricole est une variable non observée définie par les activités de production du ménage agricole. Le modèle du ménage agricole producteur et consommateur permet de définir les critères de participation de la femme à une activité professionnelle. L'étude empirique basée sur un échantillon de ménages agricoles français montre que les variables exogènes (formation, caractéristiques de l'exploitation,..) ont, en général, des effets opposés sur les probabilités de travailler sur l'exploitation et hors de l'exploitation. [eng] Labour supply of farmers' wives: an application to French data by Catherine Benjamin, Hervé Guyomard and Michel Sollogoub When allocating their working time, farmers' wives make a choice between working on the farm and/or working off the farm. One specific feature of their labour supply is that the marginal remuneration of the agricultural activity is not observable. It is defined by the agricultural household's production activities. The agricultural producer and consumer household model is used to define the criteria for female participation in an agricultural activity and/or in the labour market off the farm. An empirical study based on a sample of French agricultural households shows that exogenous variables (education, farm characteristics, etc.) generally have opposite effects on the probability of working on the farm and on the probability of working off the farm.
