Household Chores

The Household Chores measure is a single item measure derived from the Impact Evaluation of WLSME Program questionnaire. Household Chores asks individuals to describe the degree that they share household responsibilities with others. Different tasks captured by the measure vary from daily tasks such as food preparation to more situationally specific tasks like caring for family members.
