FACTORS INFLUENCING THE DIVISION OF HOUSEWORK IN CZECH HOUSEHOLDS AND EVALUATIONS OF EQUITABILITY
Languages of publication
The authoress draws on data from the ISSP 2002 to analyse the factors influencing the division of housework in Czech households and personal evaluations of whether the division is equitable. Drawing on economic principles (theory of relative resources, theory of temporal accessibility) and the significance of gender roles she uses a multi-linear regression analysis to examine whether the absolute or the relative temporal involvement of men and women in household work differs 1) according to the possibilities and limitations on a person's time, 2) according to their income level in comparison with their partner, and 3) according to their level of education, and whether these factors influence the way people evaluate their contribution to household work. The results show that, in addition to gender, the most important factor is temporal accessibility. As the burden of paid work grows, temporal involvement in housework declines. For women, the volume of housework is also increased by the presence of children in the family. Conversely, neither relative income nor education level is a clear predictor of the degree of involvement in housework.
