AVELINO, Ricardo  and  MENEZES-FILHO, Naércio. Estimação da oferta de trabalho das mulheres no Brasil. Estud. Econ. [online]. 2003, vol.33, n.4, pp.639-664. ISSN 1980-5357.

The paper estimates labor supply equations for married women in Brazil, between 1992 and 1999, comparing three existing models, Stone-Geary, Heckman-MaCurdy and Blundell-Duncan-Meghir. An econometric method of pseudo panel is applied to repeated cross-sections, which allows the researcher to control for observed and unobserved characteristics of the individuals in the sample. The resulting elasticities are in the range of -0.213 to 0.050, depending on the model and specification chosen for labor supply.

Keywords : labor supply; women in the labor market; pseudo panel; repeated cross-sections; cohort analysis.
