Looking after the Household

According to the answers provided, Czechs most often look after the household together, as stated by three fifths of men and almost a half of women. Only a small proportion of men said that most care for the household was placed on them. A quarter of men admitted that their partners do the most in looking after the household, however a third of women believe that they themselves do the most in looking after the household.

As it is obvious from the figures above, either men overestimate their share in looking after the household or on the contrary women do not appreciate their contribution properly. However, the most likely situation is such that in families, where both partners look after the household to a certain degree, men overestimate their contribution and more often answer that they mutually help one another and do everything together, where women usually see this situation as that most of the care lies with them.
