Presentation: Marina Zannella, Alessandra De Rose, Couples' Gender Differences in Subjective Wellbeing during Parenting Time
In this study, we use micro data from the latest edition of the Italian Time Use Survey (2013-2014) and analyze couples’ child care episodes to measure gender differences in subjective well-being during parenting time. Based on episodes-enjoyment scores, we build a dichotomous indicator of unpleasantness according to which an episode is classified as unpleasant for the respondent (U-index=1) if its enjoyment-score is equal or below to the lowest 25th percentile of the scores recorded for the corresponding activity. We take advantage of the detailed survey’s information to distinguish between the different typologies of child care activities. We are particularly interested in understanding whether and to what extent the subjective well-being of mothers and fathers change according to the multi-tasking nature of the activity and the presence of the partner.
