  • Sweets or Alcohol? The Gender Battle within Japanese Families

    Xiangdan Piao

    Economics Bulletin ( AccessEcon )  37 ( 1 ) 190 - 203   2017.01

    Academic Journal  Single Work

    This paper provides a new perspective from which to understand intra-household food allocation by examining how gendered differences in food preferences and wives' share of household income—a proxy for wives' bargaining power—influence food allocation. In a two-stage estimation in this study, single households were used to identify whether men and women have different food preferences, and then, households consisting of couples were used to examine how wives' share of household income affects household food allocation. The estimation results show that an increase in wives' share of household income increases the share of expenditure on the sweet foods preferred by women and decreases the share of expenditure on the drinks and alcohol preferred by men. Regarding food eaten inside and outside the home, the share of total expenditure on eating out of households with full-time working wives is increased and the purchases of vegetables and seafood are decreased. These results indicate that a potential disadvantage of increasing the number of female married full-time workers is lower-quality household diets due to increased eating out and reduced spending on vegetables.

  • The Impact of Intra-household Bargaining Power on Happiness of Married Women: Evidence from Japan.

    Xinxin Ma, Xiangdan Piao

    Journal of Happiness Studies ( Springer Netherlands )  20 ( 6 ) 1775 - 1806   2019.08

    Academic Journal  Multiple authorship

    This paper evaluates the correlation between intra-household bargaining power and the happiness of married women using Japanese longitudinal survey data (Japanese Panel Survey of Consumers: JPSC) from 1995 to 2013. The results suggest that when absolute income, relative household income, and other factors are constant, the income gap, wage gap and education gap between wife and husband negatively affect married Japanese women’s happiness. The proportion of the total household income or husband’s income controlled by the wife can positively affect married Japanese women’s happiness. The effects of intra-household bargaining power on happiness are greater for the working married women group than the housewife group.

  • Intra-household Manageable Income and the Choice on Self or Other Expenditures.

    Piao, X.

    The Journal of Applied Business and Economics, ( Education and Novel Technology Research Association, )  21 ( 9 ) 94 - 98   2019.12

    Academic Journal  Single Work

    This paper focuses on the expenditures of heterosexual couples using the Japanese Panel Survey of Consumers. A family’s income transfer information can help identify the division of resources. The results were calculated using Engle curves, and showed that an increase in resources led to an increase in both private expenditures and expenditures on others. In addition, they often spent different resources on themselves and others when they had different levels of income. On average, wives had fewer private expenditures than husbands. Moreover, husbands spent more on private expenditures when had fewer available resources and less when they had more resources.

  • Impact of Gaps in the Educational Levels between Married Partners on Health and a Sustainable Lifestyle: Evidence from 32 Countries.

    Xiangdan Piao, Xinxin Ma, Chi Zhang, Shunsuke Managi

    Sustainability ( Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute )  12 ( 11 ) 1 - 21   2020.01

    Academic Journal  Multiple authorship

    Using original cross-sectional internet survey data from 32 countries covering six continents, we investigated the impact of education gaps between married partners on their health status and sustainable lifestyles using the instrumental variable method. A self-rated health status index, mental health index, and an objective health status index were utilized to assess the health statuses of individuals, and six unique indices were used to investigate the sustainable lifestyles. According to the main findings, work-family conflicts may be severe for both wives and husbands with high education levels, and the hypothesis regarding the positive effect of income was not supported. Two major conclusions were derived. First, in general, as opposed to couples with equal education levels, the probability of reporting a worse health status was higher, and the activities related to sustainable development such as improving environmental sustainability were less for couples with education gaps. Second, a comparison of the effects of education gaps on the health status of couples in various groups reveals that highly educated groups, women, and people in Asian or middle-income countries had a higher negative effect on their health status.
