dc.description.abstractWe hypothesize that an individual?s time use choices are contingent on the time use choicesof others because the utility derived from leisure time often benefits from the presence ofcompanionable others inside and outside the household. We develop a model of time use, anddemonstrate that its consistency with the behaviour of British working couples in the 1990s.We present evidence of the synchronisation of working hours by spouses and report estimatesindicating that propensities to engage in associative activity depend on the availability ofSuitable Leisure Companions outside the household. Our results indicate the importance ofexternalities in the working time decisions of individuals.en_US
