Australians' time use in work, housework and leisure: changing profiles



Australians' time use in work, housework and leisure: changing profiles



Australian and New Zealand Journal of Sociology 21(3): 371-394



Two major time-budget studies undertaken in Australia are compared: the 1974 Cities Commission survey in Albury-Wodonga and Melbourne, involving interviews with 1493 adults, and a 1981 interview survey of 924 adults in Melbourne and Ballarat. Some broad comparisons of time allocation changes between such activities as work, leisure and domestic labour in the 7-year period are made, and comparisons are made with similar work in the UK.
