This paper briefly reviews major studies on household models with household production and collective choices. Household production is considered to produce domestic services from domestic labor time and consumption goods. Collective household models assume that each individual of a household has its own utility function to be maximized under the entire household budget constraint. Recent collective models also include household production function. However, those models require the assumption that the labor supply for household production can be evaluated at the market wage rate. Also, most of collective models assume the distribution rule, which is often difficult to be described empirically. For these reasons, the mechanism of intrahousehold resource allocation taking household production into account has not been perfectly modelled and verified. Nevertheless, developing such models will be important for macro policies as well as micro theories, because the decision mechanism of intrahousehold resource allocation affects the form of family and the future of society through the behavior of each household member, especially females.
