  • Iulie Aslaksen

  • Hanne Gravningsmyhr


Household welfare is significantly affected by time-use patterns in household work and other activities. In this paper, we combine data from time budget surveys and consumer expenditure surveys in order to analyze the connection between consumption and time use and develop an improved method for allocating consumption expenditure to household activities.
