- 주제: Gender heterogeneity in peer effects on work: Evidence from multidimensional social networks in rural India
- Abstract: We investigate heterogeneous peer effects on male and female employment outcomes through various social networks in developing areas. Using data on social networks in rural India, we find a strong peer influence on female labor supply, regardless of peer types, such as friends, relatives, and risk-sharing partners, whereas men's work decisions seem to be unaffected. The peer effects on female labor supply are mostly driven by peers' aggregate outcome rather than the average outcome of peers. The results indicate the presence of social multiplier effects such that having more women who work in rural villages amplifies women's labor force participation. The same-gender network neighbors have a stronger impact on female labor supply than the opposite-gender peers. Moreover, we find that women respond to peer's aggregate decisions on working outside their village, whereas men's work locations are more subject to peers' average outcome. Our findings imply that policymakers could utilize social network information to improve women's employment and welfare.
