Sex and gender continue to shape the division of household responsibilities in the United States in the twenty-first century. According to the 2018 American Time Use Survey, 84 percent of women and 69 percent of men reported that they spent some time performing household duties, which included “housework, cooking, lawn care, or household management.” Women reported spending an average of 2.6 hours a day on household activities, and men 2.0 hours. On a surveyed day, 49% percent of women and 20% of men reported doing housework. Men and women’s perception of household responsibilities differ. Pew Research Center’s 2014 Religious Landscape Study found that fathers were more likely than mothers to say that chores were evenly split between both partners . When asked, 50% of mothers reported they handled more responsibilities around the house than their partners; only 12% of fathers reported they did more household tasks. Despite this difference in perception, a majority of married U.S. adults said that sharing household chores as “very important” to a successful marriage.
