Abstract

The focus of this thesis is on the labor supply decisions of married and cohabiting women in relation to the housing tenure choice decision. The main motivation for a joint analysis has been the relaxation of the mortgage qualification constraint. Since 1992 households can take out a mortgage on the basis of two incomes instead of one. Women may want to supply more labor to obtain a higher mortgage, but on the other hand higher mortgage commitments may constrain women to keep working. The empirical analyses, based on the Dutch Socio-Economic Panel, are performed within a static and a dynamic framework.
