Determinants of Household Expenditures for Services
Data from the Bureau of Statistics Consumer Expenditure Surveys were used to investigate factors influencing household expenditures for services in the United States. There were significant differences between families with full-time and part-time working wives in expenditures on child care, food away from home, and total services. Household production variables had a significant impact on service expenditures in most instances, while the effects of other variables such as family life cycle, education, race, and geographic location varied by service category and employment status of wife.
