Life Course Transitions

Topic: J1. Demographic Economics

ongoing Project

This research project focuses on the economics of the life course and the way in which life course transitions relate to markets. The project will address various issues including the relationship between life course transitions, and the markets for human capital formation, labor, and housing, intra-household bargaining, and inter-generational ties. This research has a strong gender component given the very different trajectories pursued by men and women over their life courses. A central part of such a gender perspective is the understanding of household dynamics and bargaining and how they affect decisions relating to various markets.
