Abstract

I began with the well-worn story of “who does what” in the market and the household. Judging from the literature, and the descriptive statistics in Chapter 3, it looked as if there wasn’t much variance, or even much of a story to tell: husbands are the primary breadwinners, so-called, and wives the household workers. When wives take outside jobs, they add those hours to their work in the home. Such generalizations are, of course, accurate, if imprecise. And that is where the analysis began.
