dc.description.abstractDepending on data source, estimates of hours of work give widely different results both as tolevel and change. In this paper three alternative measures of hours worked are used toestimate a simple labour supply function to investigate if estimated wage rate and incomeeffects are data dependent as well. The measures used include those from time-use surveysand those from regular surveys. The latter are based on the responses to a question aboutnormal weekly hours of market work. The results suggest that estimates of the wage rateeffects become much smaller when measures of normal hours are used compared to datacollected for a well-defined time period close to the date of interview, such as time-use data.The income effects appear less sensitive to the choice of data.en_US
