dc.description.abstractUnitary models, assuming a single objective function and unified budget constraint, aretraditionally used to model household behavior. Most empirical tests of unitary models rely onendogenous regressors. This paper uses an exogenous change in the intrahousehold distributionof income, provided by a change in U.K. Family Allowance policy. Expenditure shares areestimated for a wide range of goods. Shifts in expenditure shares for assignable goods, such asmen?s clothing, children?s clothing, and men?s tobacco, suggest that children benefited at theexpense of men when this policy change shifted income within households from men to women.en_US
