The principals conclusions are that the sex of the one interviewed is the variable that conditions the quantity of hours that she/he dedicates to the tasks into the household. The women dedicate on the average 30 weekly hours to these tasks, while the men dedicate approximately the half approximately in the case in that the couple's members work outside of the home. Men dedication to those tasks household diminishes when increasing the age. When the opportunity cost of the domestic working hours of the women increases, they diminish its dedication to the household.
