Substantively, it attempts to apply and test a fairly well known model of labour supply. From a methodological point of view, it shows how the Linear Probability Function (LPF) may be applied to the analysis of survey data. This technique is one of a family of multivanate methods which are being increasingly applied to the analysis of behaviour on the micro-level in a wide variety of social science disciplines economics, sociology, psychology, demography, etc.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||The Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland||Journal:||Journal of the Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland||Volume:||23||Issue:||1||Start page:||1||End page:||33||Copyright (published version):||1974, The Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland||Subject LCSH:||Labor supply--Ireland--Econometric models
