Married Women's Retirement Behavior
Silvana Pozzebon, Olivia S. Mitchell
NBER Working Paper No. 2104
In this paper we examine the economic and family determinants of married women's retirement behavior. A model of wives' retirement decisions is developed and tested empirically using data on working married women. Estimated response parameters are compared to those obtained previously for male workers. Our findings are directly relevant to policy questions regarding pension and Social Security reform.
