Abstract

A household production function is developed that allows for persons to be engaged in more than one activity at a point in time. Labor inputs are scaled back when two activities are being undertaken. Data from the 1987 Australian Time Use Survey is used to estimate equations explaining input hours into home production by adult members of the household. One implication of the empirical results is that, when two activities are being undertaken simultaneously, input hours on the activity coded as 'primary" and the input hours on the activity coded as 'secondary' should each have a weight of one-half.
