Abstract
The overlapping of activities is an important dimension of time use that has previously received little attention in economic analysis. Most time use studies have looked only at primary activities, ignoring the fact that individuals often perform two or more activities simultaneously. Using a two-adult household sub-sample from the 1992 National Australian Time Use Survey, this paper examines the incidence and determinants of overlapping activities among 3966 adult male and female household members.
