Equivalence Scales: A Household Production Approach

ByTran Van Hoa, Duncan S. Ironmonger

In spite of the impact of Becker’s results on economic analysis in general, not much research on their empirical applications has been carried out in Australia. In fact, to our knowledge, no empirical research based on a household production approach and on data at the micro/individual household level has been carried out in Australia, used in economic policy formulation, or reported in the economic literature [see Ironmonger (1988)].
