(p.217) Chapter Eleven Men's and Women's Reports about Housework
Dividing the Domestic
Claudia Geist
Stanford University Press

Couples do not always agree on how much housework each partner does. Wives do not report as much household work done by their husbands as the latter claim for themselves. This chapter examines the extent to which men and women agree on the division of household labor and how fair the housework arrangements are. It presents data on reporting discrepancies for 35 countries that can assist future researchers in weighing the implications of gender reporting gaps for cross-national survey analyses. The chapter considers gender inequality as it relates to gender reporting differences across countries.

Keywords:   couples, housework, household work, housework arrangements, gender, reporting, gender inequality
