Voici un résumé de l’étude :
This paper documents changes in labour supply, wage and education by gender and marital status using the British Household Panel Survey, 1991-2008, and disentangles the main channels behind these changes. The authors use a version of Goussé, Jacquemet, and Robin (2016)’s search-matching model of the marriage market with labour supply, which does not use information on home production time inputs. They derive conditions under which the model is identified. They estimate different parameters for each year. This allows them to quantify how much of the changes in labour supply, wage and education by gender and marital status depends on changes in the preferences for leisure of men and women and how much depends on changes in homophily. They find that changes in labour supply by gender and marital status result from variations in preference for leisure whereas changes in the distributions of wages and education by gender and marital status result from strengthened homophily (mostly educational).
