The Effects of Family Characteristics and Time Use on Teenagers' Household Labor.
Gager, Constance T.; Cooney, Teresa M.; Call, Kathleen Thiede
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v61 n4 p982-94 Nov 1999
Longitudinal data collected from teenagers were analyzed for types of household chores the teens perform. The study determined that girls devoted more time to household tasks than boys, while both their efforts were greater in larger families and single-parent families. High school males spent more time on extracurricular and leisure activities, while girls worked longer hours in paid and unpaid labor. (Author/JDM)
