Externality of young children on parents’ watching of anime: Evidence from Japanese micro data
This paper attempts to ascertain the determinants of watching anime in Japan based on individual-level data from Japan. In particular, this study investigates how adults are influenced by the existence of their children. After controlling for individual characteristics, it was found that people are more likely to watch anime when they have children aged less than 12 years. Such an effect is larger for women than for men. This tendency is observed even when respondents are full-time workers. This implies that the externality coming from children results in parents watching anime. Furthermore, the externality is larger for women than men regardless of their time constraints.
