Abstract

This paper tests, using data from South Africa and Pakistan, two major implications of the unitary household model, namely, that (a) each individual pools the various components of her/his non labour earnings, and (b) men and women pool their non labour earnings between themselves. The study uses a three stage least squares procedure that, besides recognising the endogeneity of all the income variables, allows for simultaneity between all the income and expenditure equations.
