UM04-14 - Life-Cycle Saving in Dual-Earner Households

John P. Laitner, Christopher House and Dmitriy Stolyarov

We propose to use the life-cycle model of saving behavior to investigate whether changes in married women’s labor market participation rates lead to mismeasurement of the national saving ratio. We propose to test our specification with microdata and to investigate resulting implications for Social Security reform.
