<p><p><p>Households are groups of individuals who take decisions in a manner which is unobserved by social scientists. The consequences of these decisions, be it consumption, labour supply, savings, or investment in human capital of children can be observed, and their links with the environment and with households's characteristics can be measured. Understanding how changes in the environment and differences in characteristics modify the behaviour of households is of considerable importance for the design and evaluation of policies aimed at individuals. </p><p>The workshop provides a platform for discussion of current issues in measuring, modelling and analysing household behaviour, from the more theoretical to the purely descriptive ends of the spectrum. </p></p></p>
