Affordable Access

Gender, time use and public policy over the life cycle

  • Gender Identity


Patricia Apps and Ray Rees compare gender differences in the allocation of time to market work, domestic work, child care, and leisure over the life cycle, using survey data for three countries: Australia, the UK and Germany. They discuss the extent to which gender differences and life cycle variation in time use can be explained by public policy, focusing on the tax treatment of the female partner and on access to high quality, affordable child care.
