Living in a married household typically mitigates income risk. Is this true during a pandemic? On the one hand, the presence of two potential earners reduces the household income risk associated with a cut in hours, job loss, or a stay at home order. On the other, married couples are more likely to have children to care for during a stay at home order and larger households are more likely to have a member with a health condition that makes them vulnerable to severe illness if they contract the virus. Using a structural model of labor supply, we measure how these factors affect the welfare outcomes of different household types and the aggregate dynamics of employment in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
