entered the labor force. Once the oldest children in the family begin working, the household budget constraint is relaxed, permitting more investment in the human capital of younger siblings. Second, time spent in a smaller family is longer for first- and last-born than for middle children (Birdsall, ). However, labor, the time and effort provided by household members, is really the use of human capital ; the second factor of production, capital, is the use of physical or tangible non-human capital (the services provided by land, dwellings, vehicles and equipment).

Family labor allocation in the agricultural household by Pan A. Yotopoulos Download PDF EPUB FB2

The substitution of capital for labor and new labor-saving technologies has reduced the labor required for farming, yet many farms today depend on hired labor in some form.

Common in the literature is the assumption of perfectly substitutable farm labor. This has implications for the operator's off-farm labor by: 7. In the model of Kongsamut et al. (), technological progress was uniform across sectors, but labor moved out of agriculture because of the household’s desire to change the composition of its consumption allocation toward manufactured goods and services (differences in income elasticities).

This paper analyzes the deterrent effect of this land arrangement on labor mobility by constructing a household model which considers both part-time farming and permanent migration by:   This paper studies rural communities' land and labor choices under communal tenure.

The research shows that the household labor population can be configured in agriculture, non-agricultural industries, and family three Departments.

Bringing in the household sector can make. Intra-household allocation of resources largely depends on two broad processes: the resource generation process and the resource distribution process (Browning et al., ; Fafchamps and Quisumbing, ; Chiappori,).

The resource generation process depends on how various members of the household allocate their labor to production.

Improved technologies are increasingly being promoted to farmers in sub-Saharan-African countries to address low agricultural productivity in their staple crops. the implementation of row planting has important consequences for inter- and intra-household labor allocation, with relatively more use of non-family labor.

Within many African households, agricultural production occurs on many plots controlled by different members of the household.

Pareto efficiency implies that factors should be allocated efficiently across these plots. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics Cost of Living Survey –, this article shows that working children had higher clothing expenditures than did nonworking children and that clothing expenditures were increasing in the income a child brought into the household.

Household-level data from Sierra Leone are used to test whether higher caloric intake enhances family farm labor productivity. This is the notion behind the efficiency wages hypothesis, which has.

Conceptually, the labor allocation decision in the context of utility maximization has been modeled either as an individual utility maximization problem, such as in the migration model of Todaro (Todaro, ), or as a household utility maximization problem, as in the spirit of Becker’s family labor allocation model (Becker, ).

In addition to farm work, most farm households in developed countries have at least one person working off-farm.

Dowry is a cultural practice, ubiquitous in South Asia, in which the bride’s family provides gifts and payments to the groom’s family at the time of marriage.

Using data from Pakistan we find that the presence in a household of unmarried girls and young women is a very strong predictor of propensity to receive remittances from family members working elsewhere. Starting from the top of Figure 1, when a member of a household becomes infected with HIV, household labor will be reduced, both due to the decreased health status of the person living with AIDS (PWLA) and through the labor requirements for of labor will result in decreased agricultural productivity.

Household resources are likely to decline due both to increased HIV related. The choice of control variables builds on the literature of agricultural household models that outline various regimes of household participation in labor markets (Eswaran and Kotwal,   Among the deductible expenses are amounts paid to farm labor.

If a farmer pays his child to do farm work and a true employer-employee relationship exists, reasonable wages or other compensation paid to the child is deductible. The wages are included in the child’s income, and the child may have to file an income tax return.

III. The Interface between Time Allocation and Agricultural Development 7. The preponderance of women's labor in agriculture is illuminated by the time allocation studies. Detailed farm system surveys reveal women's greater labor contribution to crop production (Box 2).

A critical dimension is the seasonality of time use (Figure 2).
