Abstract:

The paper considers the allocation of time among working-age women in Britain using time-budget data from 1986–1987. It finds that women generally allocate 69% of their time towards non-work, 21% to unpaid work, and 10% towards paid work (which is often censored). It also estimates the coefficients of the uncensored functions and compares the findings to the outcomes of the censored labour supply regression stemming from the Selection-Bias Correction (SBC) and Tobit procedures.
