Abstract

This paper outlines a methodology to identify the preference parameters that characterize household behaviour over the life-cycle, through the specification and estimation of a model of individual behaviour. The focus of this research is directed towards commodity demands, female labour supply and the intertemporal allocation of life- time wealth. Empirical estimates of the parameters of interest are reported at the end of this paper.
