Abstract

This paper investigates the role of locational factors on task and time allocation on the household level. It is hypothesized that, if time constraints are less binding as a result of living in an urban area or owning more cars, spouses engage more often and longer in out-of-home activities and schedule their activities more independently. The hypotheses are tested by estimating logistic and Cox regression models of activity participation and time allocation on a data set collected in the Eindhoven region. The results of the analyses suggest that the hypotheses are supported with respect to specific household activity scheduling decisions.
