Household task allocation in a rural Mexican community

Household task allocation in a rural Mexican community

Dissertation Abstracts International, A 41(2): p. 723

Patterns of task allocation are examined in a Mazahua-speaking community in the central Mexican highlands. Data were collected from an intensive study of six households, concerning the allocation of work according to age and sex, the economic value of children, and the changes that have occurred in household adaptive strategies and task allocation patterns in recent decades. It is concluded that age and sex are only two of the many determinants of task allocation choices.
