    [fre] Economies d'échelle dans les encaisses monétaires des ménages: une série de tests empiriques L'hypothèse d'économies d'échelle dans les encaisses monétaires des ménages est ici testée sur un échantillon de comptes chèques bancaires français en 1966. Les économies d'échelle mises en évidence, comparée à celles que laissaient attendre les modèles théoriques (Allais, Baumol), apparaissent comme relativement modestes : il est suggéré que cette modestie est due au fait que les volumes des transactions des comptes étudiés diffèrent plus en raison de la valeur moyenne des opérations effectuées que du nombre de ces opérations. [eng] Economies of scale in the households' cash balances Here is tested on a sample of french checking-deposits in 1966 the hypothesis of economies of scale in the households' cash balances. These economies of scale when compared to those expected frorn theoretical models (Allais, Baumol) turn out to be relatively small. It is suggested that this slight result is due to the fact that the volumes of the tansactions of the studied accounts differ more because of the average value ol the effective operations than because of the number of these operations.
