It begins with an overview of the relationship between consumption, income, and time use, and then summarizes recent research on time allocation and its implications for relative well-being. Next, it summarizes research comparing differences in leisure time, assigning a market value to household production, and analyzing inequality among and within households. The final section explores some implications for analysis of poverty and public policy.
