Abstract

This thesis is mainly concerned with a simultaneous analysis of the economic determinants of female employment and fertility decisions on a household level in the Netherlands. In particular, this thesis is interested in the role of the employment decisions of women in the observed behavior that higher waged women schedule births later in life compared to lower waged women. Furthermore, the effects of a household's financial wealth on the female employment and fertility decisions is investigated. In addition, a chapter is devoted to the effects of demographics and female employment on the allocation of household expenditure to consumer goods.
