This study has a double focus, substantive and methodological. 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.
