Oropesa, R. S.
Journal of Family Issues, v14 n3 p438-73 Sep 1993
Used national survey data from over 700 respondents to examine how wives' labor force participation affects extent to which families use market economy to provide goods and services traditionally produced by women. Found that full-time working wives were more likely than wives at home to purchase cleaning and meal preparation services. (Author/NB)
