Housekeepers' Capacity as a Supply of Labor
Abstract>i>The distribution of housework time spent by>/i> "katei fujin" [housewives] is drawn from the National Time Use Survey (conducted by the NHK Broadcasting Culture Research Institute). The difference between their housework time and the standard working time is used to estimate how much labor can be supplied by homemakers. The findings show that the estimated amount of time homemakers could supply is too small to offset the labor shortage that is predicted to arise from demographic changes.
