Division of Labor in Two-Earner Homes: Task Accomplishment versus Household Management as Critical Variables in Perceptions about Family Work.
Mederer, Helen J.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n1 p133-45 Feb 1993
Data from 359 married, full-time employed women tested extent to which allocation of tasks and allocation of household management predict perceptions of fairness and conflict. Task and management allocation contributed independently and differently to perceptions of fairness and conflict about housework allocation. Unfairness was predicted by both types of allocation; conflict was predicted only by task allocation. (Author/NB)
