The changing amount of time spent on unpaid housework in different Household Types and, particularly the distribution of this work within the household, can indicate the changing roles of males, females and older children in society. The level of unpaid domestic work in Hampton may also be related to Household Income, as higher income households are able to outsource some of these tasks.
