Abstract

This paper evaluates the labor supply of male and female on own-farm, agri-wage and non-farm activities in Pakistan Our analysis reveals that education, caste, village infrastructure appeared to be important determinants for labor supply of both male and female. We also estimated the existence of perfect markets by applying three tests of separability. All tests strongly rejected the separability hypothesis, indicating the dependence of production and consumption decisions of rural households in Pakistan.
