This paper analyzes 1968 and 1987-88 metropolitan Washington, DC, household travel surveys to understand the daily allocation of time among different activities of individuals classified by work status and gender. An increase in overall time spent at work per person is the result of the increase in female labor force participation rates. Less time is spent at home due to the increase in work trips and the simultaneous increase in non-work trips. Money has become a substitute for time spent at home, as seen in the number of household services purchased outside the home. The group of individuals who work at home is analyzed separately to obtain an understanding of this growing segment.
