The bar chart illustrates how many females and males participate in house chores and how much time they spend in these tasks in the year of 2010 in a particular country.
It is quite evident that a larger proportion of females take part in the housework. Apart from house repair, in which more males allocated more time than females (14% versus 8%), the other categories all saw a higher female participation in the house tasks. Specifically speaking, there were 62% of females doing the cleaning, far outnumbering the males. The difference of figures was quite similar in cooking meals, where majority of females were engaged in this house task, compared with only less than a quarter of males.
In terms of the amount of time both genders spent, a substantial quadruple gap can be found in cooking meals and cleaning. Females averagely spent 82 and 42 minutes in cooking and cleaning, while their male counterparts only spent 21 and 10 minutes accordingly. Interestingly, the same quantity of time was spent in caring pets but men devote more time in house repair.
Overall, females are more involved in most of the household task, while house repair is more undertaken by males.
