The Review of Economics of the Household intends to become a major outlet for high-quality empirical and theoretical research on the economic behavior of households. Articles are expected to explicitly consider the concept of household production or to deal with issues of household composition or household decision-making. Policy relevance is encouraged. Household economics encompasses the following topics: Population Economics; The Economics of Labor Supply; Macro Issues in Household Economics; The Economics of Health Decisions by Households; Issues of Intra-Household Allocation; Selected Issues in Public Economics; Consumer economics; The Economics of Agricultural Households; Household Demand for Environmental Goods; Household Demand for Transportation; The Economics of Gender and Households; Households and Economic Development. A variety of models and methods have been applied to the analysis of these topics, including market analysis, game theory, economic experiments, and dynamic models. Some of these models are theoretical, others are empirical. Some models are part of what is called the New Home Economics tradition. One of the goals of the journal is to facilitate the communication of advances in research on various aspects of household decision-making based on a variety of data and methods, a process that will hopefully lead to cross-fertilization. As a group, the associate editors who will oversee the reviewing process are experts in most of the topics that the journal will cover.
