- In Japan, there are many empirical studies that examine the relationship between wife’s labour force participation and household conditions, socioeconomic pressures and deterrents. But it is uncommon to estimate the effect of locality, mainly because of the data restriction.
The NFR98 data enables us to put the variables(city size) in the model. So the objective of this analysis is to estimate the effects of household variables: the age of child(ren), the existence of parent(s), and socioeconomic variables: couple’s education, husband’s occupation and his income, to wife’s labour force participation and working style, by city size.
Using the NFR98, the Probit estimates of wife’s working indicate that the nature of the household and socioeconomic effects are complex. The Douglas-Arisawa model, as an experimental law, about wife’s labour force participation, is typically found among the NFR98 couples living in 13 largest cities. That is, the husband’s low education and income level pressure the wife to work. And the style of wife’s working: full-time or part-time work, is affected by her education; higher education acts as the pressure to full-time work, in 13 largest cities. Furthermore the existence of school age child(ren) put the wife to part-time work, regardless of city size.
