Air Reserve Personnel Study: Vol. II, The Air Reserve Forces and the Economics of Secondary Labor Market Participation
Investigates the determinants of the aggregate supply function of moonlighting labor in terms of demographic and market factors. The Tobit model of limited dependent variables was used to estimate a moonlighting supply curve from data from the Income Dynamics Panel study.
