ARONSSON T. and Brannas K. (1996) Household work travel time, Reg. Studies 30, 541-548. This study derives and estimates models for the work travel time of each spouse in the household conditional on both spouses' hours of work. The model is estimated using Swedish household data. The own labour supply has a positive impact on travel time for females and a negative one for males. The estimated effects of the other spouse's labour supply are insignificant. An overall test of whether the hours of work are weakly separable from work travel time indicates that this hypothesis cannot be rejected for males but can be rejected for females. ARONSSON T. et Brannas K. (1996) La duree du trajet au lieu de travail des menages, Reg. Studies 30, 541-548. Cette etude engendre et estime des modeles relatifs a la duree du trajet au lieu de travail pour chaque epoux du menage en fonction des heures de travail des deux epoux. Le modele est estime a partir des donnees relatives aux menages suedois. L'offre de travail individuelle a un impact positif sur la duree du trajet des femmes et un impact negatif sur celle des hommes. Les effets estimes de l'offre de travail de l'autre epoux sont negligeables. On teste de maniere globale si, oui ou non, les heures de travail se separent faiblement de la duree du trajet au lieu de travail. Il s'avere que cette hypothese ne peut pas etre rejetee pour ce qui concerne les hommes tandis qu'elle peut etre rejetee pour ce qui est des femmes. ARONSSON T. and Brannas K. (1996) Anreisezeiten zur Arbeit verschiedener Personen eines Haushalts, Reg. Studies 30, 541-548. Dieser Aufsatz beschaftigt sich mit Ableitung und Berechnung von Modellen fur Anreisezeiten zur Arbeit beider Ehegatten, die durch ihre Arbeitsstunden bedingt werden. Dem Modell liegt die Berechnung von Daten schwedischer Haushalte zugrunde. Fur Frauen wirkt sich Eigenbeschaftigung positiv auf Wegzeiten aus, und negativ fur Manner. Die berechnete Wirkung der Mithilfe des andern Ehepartners bei der Arbeit ist gering. Eine Gesamtunter-suchung, ob Wochenarbeitsstunden von Wegstunden trennbar sind, deutet darauf hin, dass solch eine Hypothese zwar fur Munner zutrifft, jedoch nicht fur Frauen.
