Home appliances and gender gap of time spent on unpaid housework: Evidence using household data from Vietnam

Tien Vu

No 2016-18, AGI Working Paper Series from Asian Growth Research Institute

Abstract: We examined the gender gap between wives and husbands with regard to time spent on unpaid housework using interaction terms between the appearance of home appliances and gender among 36,480 Vietnamese households. We found the gender gap is persistent regardless of the number of co-residing children, age cohorts, household size and income, and working status of the couples. In household fixed-effect estimations, the gender gap of time increased with the appearance of home appliances such as gas cookers. One of the main reasons is the reduction in the probability of men participating in housework tasks related to home appliances.
