Studies in Labor Supply, the second volume of Jacob Mincer's essays to be published in this series, focuses on the family context of labor supply especially that of women. Special attention is devoted to wage incentives and wage consequences of labor supply and to long term trends in the female labor force, a major social phenomenon of the twentieth century.

Jacob Mincer's research reveals a rare combination of imaginative empirical analysis guided by a command of theory. His work and professional style have set the standard for empirical economics. This is especially true of his work on the labor force participation of married women.

This is the second of two volumes containing carefully edited selections of Professor Mincer's most important essays, some of which are published here for the first time. Introductions to each volume provide overviews of the interconnections of the topics discussed, their conceptual coherence and empirical significance. Studies in Human Capital, the first volume of Professor Mincer's essays, is also available as part of this series.
