Abstract

This dissertation investigates the retirement decision of married couples. Using the longitudinal Health and Retirement Study (hrs), i test how well the stackelberg model of joint decision-making fit the data. I test several hypotheses regarding leadership role in the household. I also use sub-samples defined by cluster analysis to allow for heterogeneity in decision-making.
