Abstract

This paper is concerned with the simultaneous determination of housing consumption, residential location and the labour supply decisions of one-earner and two-earner households. The model is applied to the city of Bogota, Colombia. It finds that housing consumption and location as well as labour supply decisions vary across gender and household type. The paper suggests that married women who work in the labour market have the burden of a long journey-to-work and a probable heavy share of household responsibilities; their well-being is further eroded by lower wages and compensatingly long hours of work.
