Labour Supply, Unemployment and Income Taxation: An Empirical Application for Finnish Females


  • Kuismanen, Mika


Työn tarjontafunktion estimointi on useimmissa tapauksissa perustunut olettamukseen, että yksilöt voivat valita haluamansa työtuntimäärän. Toisen vahvan olettamuksen mukaan yksilöt, jotka eivät ole työskennelleet, eivät halua työskennellä. Molemmat oletukset ovat kumottavissa tarkastelemalla tarkemmin mikrotason aineistoa. Tässä tutkimuksessa sovelletaan Blundellin, Hamin ja Meghirin kehittämää empiiristä mallia, jossa otetaan työn tarjontafunktiota estimoitaessa huomioon työttömät ja työtä etsivät yksilöt. Työssä yleistetään ym. mallia ottamalla huomioon myös ei-lineaarinen tuloverojärjestelmä. Aineistona käytetään työvoimatutkimuksen vuosihaastatteluja vuosilta 1987, 1989, 1991 ja 1993. Saadut estimointitulokset indikoivat, että aikaisemmissa tutkimuksissa saadut palkka- ja tulojoustojen arvot voivat olla ylöspäin harhaisia käytetyn ekonometrisen lähestymistavan vuoksi.
