This paper presents a structural model of the allocation of time to various non-market activities and market work by couples and single men and women. Parameters are estimated using samples of individuals and households taken from the UK 2000 Time Use survey. Own-wage effects are found to be positive for both men and women and are larger for individuals living in couples than for singles. For couples, young children lead to a much larger increase in the time spent engaged in home production by women than men, however young children cause men to increase their total time spent working by more than women.
