Intra-household Allocation of Time to Household Production Activities - Evidence from Swedish Household Data

  • Daunfeldt, Sven-Olov


    (Department of Economics, Umeå University)

The purpose of this paper is to study the intra-household allocation of time to several household production activities using Swedish cross-sectional household data. The Tobit model is rejected in favor of the Cragg model, suggesting that the intra-household time allocation is best modeled by a two step procedure. Moreover, when household production is defined as the sum of different household activities, the results differ substantially from the case when each household activity is separately estimated. The parameter estimates also indicate that presence of children are more important than economic factors in determining the intra-household allocation of time.
