Task One, Part A
Summarise in no more than 10 bulleted points, what you understand from Table 3 ‘Division of Household tasks by sex in Great Britain, 2002’ in Chapter 4 of the Course book.
Observations about the data
• Shopping for groceries are done equally or both together with 48 per cent of men and 44 per cent of woman responding to this question.
• Women tend to leave small repair jobs around the home to the men with 65 per cent of women saying their partner or spouse usually or always did them.
• Women are inclined to look after sick family members. 62 per cent of women answered that they always or usually do this.
• Men generally do not do the housework as only 7 per cent of men reported they always or usually do it.
• Women have a propensity to prepare the meals with 62 per cent answering it was always or usually them that did this.

• This study does not show if any couples answered are in civil partnerships as this would reflect on the results to be unfair.
• This study doesn’t tell us the employment status for the couples, both having jobs would result in making it difficult to do things together.
• There is no age range in this survey. It is more acceptable these days for the younger generation to share more of the household chores.
