About my research

My research topic is analysis of household behavior. I am mainly interested in determination of household consumption, but my interests also cover topics such as female labor supply, family formation, and intra-household resource allocation. Most of my papers use official statistics, and the quality of Japanese governmental data was examined there. Now, I am conducting a new survey for household consumption.
