Abstract [en]

We utilise repeated cross sections of micro data from several countries, available from the Luxembourg

Income Study, LIS, to estimate labour supply elasticities, both at the intensive and extensive

margin. The benefit of the data is that it spans over four decades and includes a large number of

tax reform episodes, with tax rate variation arising both from cross-sectional and country-level differences.

Using these data, we investigate whether micro and macro estimates differ in a systematic

way. The results do not provide clear support to the view that elasticities at the macro level would

be higher than corresponding micro elasticities
