Parental Time and Children's Obesity Measures

We develop a theoretical model that includes household production and parental time allocation to explore the effects of parental time allocation on children's obesity-related measures. We utilize a unique primary household survey dataset that has health measures and time diary records on each parent and a child in the household.
