Aims and scope

The Review of Economics of the Household publishes high-quality empirical and theoretical research on the economic behavior and decision-making processes of single and multi-person households. The Review is not wedded to any particular models or methods. It welcomes both macro-economic and micro-level applications.

Household decisions analyzed in this journal include

· household production of human capital, health, nutrition/food, childcare, and eldercare,

· well-being of persons living in households, issues of gender and power,

· fertility and risky behaviors,

· consumption, savings and wealth accumulation,

· labor force participation andtime use,

· household formation (including marriage, cohabitation and fertility) and dissolution,

· migration, intergenerational transfers,

· experiments involving households,

· religiosity and civility.

The journal is particularly interested in policy-relevant economic analyses and equally interested in applications to countries at various levels of economic development. The Perspectives section covers articles on the history of economic thought and review articles.
