Do household technology and contracting out help save time spent on housework? For this study, a survey called Labour and Care data was conducted with 1420 female respondents aged 25-45. The dataset has data on time use as well as data on four types of home appliances and four forms of contracting. None of the four home appliances led to a decline in time spent on housework, nor did three of the four forms of contracting out. However, one form can be considered a time-saving strategy, i.e the cleaning person. This strategy is followed by working women in particular. With the help of a cleaning person, working women reduce the time spent on cleaning by 75%.
