Public Finance Review 2010 Best Paper Award Announced

November 12, 2010 820

“The Effects of the 1993 Earned Income Tax Credit Expansion on the Labor Supply of Unmarried Women” by Kampon Adireksombat, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, was published in the January 2010 issue of Public Finance Review.

Here’s the abstract:

“Using national survey data and this differential increase in EITC benefits, this study examines the effect of the 1993 EITC expansion on the labor supply of unmarried women. I find that the 1993 expansion has substantially increased the labor force participation of those women with two or more children. Moreover, the increase in the participation rate was mainly from less-educated women, the target population of the EITC program. Regarding the hours of work, I find evidence that the expansion increased total hours worked by all unmarried women. However, I find no evidence of statistically significant changes in annual hours worked by currently unmarried female workers.”
