This paper considers estimation and testing of vector autoregression coefficients in panel data, and applies the techniques to analyze the dynamic relationships between wages and hours worked in two samples of American males, the PSID and NLS of Older Men. The model allows for nonstationary individual effects, and is estimated by applying instrumental variables to the quasi-differenced autoregressive equations. Particular attention is paid to specifying lag lengths, forming convenient test statistics, and testing for the presence of measurement error. The empirical results suggest the absence of lagged hours in the wage forecasting equation. Our results also show that lagged hours is important in the hours equation, which is consistent with alternatives to the simple labor supply model that allow for costly hours adjustment or preferences that are not time separable.

Tax Illusion and the Labor Supply of Married Women

This study discusses the impact of tax rates on the labor supply of married women. The most important empirical result is that married women correctly perceive the wedge between the gross and net wage that is imposed by the income tax. That is, their labor supply decisions are based upon the after-tax wage, as suggested by basic economic theory.

Using cross-section data on white married women for the year 1976, a model of labor supply which permits statistical estimation of a "coefficient of tax perception" is studied. The model allows for the possibility that the wage may depend upon the number of hours worked. The results suggest that marginal tax rates have an important impact on labor market behavior.

The Impact of U.S. Tax Laws on the Labor Supply of Married Women

Payroll and progressive income taxes play an enormous role in the American fiscal system. It is therefore of some importance to know the extent to which they influence work incentives. Some econometric evidence is presented on the effects of taxes on married women, a group of growing importance in the American labor force. A testable model of labor supply is developed which permits statistical estimation of a "coefficient of tax perception." Unlike previous models of labor supply, it allows for the possibility that the wage may depend on the number of hours worked. Contrary to much of the literature, results strongly suggest that marginal tax rates do have an important impact on labor force behavior.
