Abstract

This paper analyzes use of the time of the couples into the household. The principals conclusions are that the sex of the one interviewed is the variable that conditions the quantity of hours that she/he dedicates to the tasks into the household. The women dedicate on the average 30 weekly hours to these tasks, while the men dedicate approximately the half approximately in the case in that the couple's members work outside of the home. Men dedication to those tasks household diminishes when increasing the age. When the opportunity cost of the domestic working hours of the women increases, they diminish its dedication to the household. In the case of the men this variable is not significant to explain the amount of domestic tasks. The presence of children smaller than 4 years old in the household increases the time that the men dedicate to the domestic tasks.
