This chapter focuses on unpaid work (housework,care of other family members, shopping and household administration) by gender in different household types in Italy. The analysis of time budget data shows a major imbalance in the allocation of unpaid work by gender in Italy with a heavier burden on women. Differences in unpaid work distribution occur by household types and women's level of education. The analysis of time budget data shows that women (apart from not employed women in household without children) always devote more time to total work (that included paid work and unpaid housework and care work) than do men and provides multivariate analysis on the different factors affecting women and men's unpaid labour supply.
