Adding to the literature on intra-household bargaining in South Africa, this paper builds on the results obtained by Maitra and Ray (2003). They find that it matters who receives the income within the household as to how it is spent. This conclusion leads to a rejection of the unitary household model punted by case and Deaton (1998). This paper is in essence a replication study of Maitra and Ray's (2003) model and seeks to examine whether post-democracy 2006 data holds the same model of the household found in 1993. Thereafter, some sensible extensions are made to further analyse if differences can be found in spending behaviour of members of the same household.
