Abstract [en]

Bertrand et al. (2015)show that among married couples in the US,the distribution of the share of the household income earned by the wife exhibits a sharp dropjust to the right of .50. They argue that this dropis consistent with a socialnormprescribing that a man should earn more than his wife.We repeat thisanalysisfor Sweden, ranked as one of the world’s most gender equalcountries. Analyzing Swedish popu-lation register data, we do not findsupport for the norm that a man should earn more than his wife
