Kyoto University Japanese Social Research Project

Project Details


This project is being undertaken in collaboration with two fully-funded visiting Japanese Professors. The project explores the Japanese Panel Study of Consumer Life (JPSCL) dataset in the context of understanding intrahousehold allocation of resources. This panel study has been running since 1993 and 27 waves are currently available. The first stage of this project involves familiarisation with the dataset and codebook as well as reviewing the extant economic literature that has analysed JPSCL. The second stage will involve cross-sectional analysis of the most recent wave. The third stage will analyse time trends in the intrahousehold distribution of gendered labour and spending. The fourth and final stage of this project will involve international comparison of JPSCL with similar panel studies from Europe and North America.
