This paper examines the relationship between women 's labor supply and divorce.

Johnson and Skinner (1986) analyzed data from the Michigan Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID), which allowed them to estimate predicted divorce probabilities based on actual divorce. They then used this predicted probability of divorce and actual divorce in estimates of female LFP, and though both variables had positive coefficients, they were statistically insignificant.
Johnson and Skinner (1986) included residence in a state with no-fault divorce legislation in their predicted labor supply equations. They concluded that living in a state with a no-fault divorce law has a negative impact on women’s labor supply. However, Johnson and Skinner’s (1986) analysis used PSID data from 1972, when only a few states had changed their divorce laws to no-fault; this created a small comparison group and a limited amount of time for the laws ' effects to occur.
Though Johnson and Skinner’s (1986) analysis suggested that no-fault

    I would definitely keep random patrol compared to having officers wait for calls like in the experiment. In the study, ride-along observers observed that officers spent a huge amount of time waiting to respond to calls and spent about as much time on non-police related activities as they did on actual police related ones because of the experiment (Temple University, 2017.) Because of this, I would lean more towards random patrol. The book brings up that officers are expected to patrol unpredictability…
