Abstract

The effect of income taxation on the labor supply of prime age married men and women in the United States is examined using econometric methods similar to those used in the influential work of Jerry Hausman. Male labor supply is found to be relatively invariant to the net wage and virtual income in all specifications estimated. The estimated impact of taxation on the labor supply of married women depends critically on the method used to estimate the labor supply function. Estimated net wage and virtual income elasticities are considerably larger when data on nonparticipants are included than when the estimation is conducted conditional on hours being greater than zero.
