Bird, Chloe E.; Ross, Catherine E.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n4 p913-25 Nov 1993
Used nationally representative sample of 2,031 adults aged 18 to 90 to compare housework and family care as primary activity with paid work and with volunteer work, leisure activities, home and yard maintenance, and schoolwork. Found that unpaid domestic work was more routine, and it provided less intrinsic gratification and fewer extrinsic symbolic rewards, than paid work. (Author/NB)
