5. Kunio Urakawa, "Analysis of poverty of income and living time in Japan: An approach from estimation of CES well-being function", World Social Science Forum 2018 (Fukuoka Convention Center), 2018.09, [Abstract] Using panel data from the Japan Household Panel Survey (2011–2014), this study performed poverty analysis with attention to two dimensions: income and leisure time. We examined the substitutability and interdependent relationship of income and time via the estimation of CES-utility function. After the quantification, we estimated the gender gap and the socio-economic causes of interdependent multidimensional (IMD) poverty in Japan.
Empirical results obtained from this analysis found that single-female-parent households are particularly prone to experience simultaneously scarcity of time and income, and two-parent households having two or more preschool children had been underestimated through the conventional income-based poverty indicator, because they unable to provide minimally required housework and childcare services even by using their household income. In addition, academic background and job statuses also affect the risk of IMD poverty.
This study contributes to find severe poverty situations and suggest the increasing necessity for further employment support for single parents and childcare support for households in which both parents work outside in Japan..
