The purpose of this study is to compare the time used in certain homemaking activities and community participation by full-time and employed rural homemakers to determine:
1. If there are differences in the use of time for these activities by the two groups.
2. The relationship between time spent in these activities and such factors as: a. Family composition b. Ownership of household equipment c. Condition of the house d. Attitude of homemakers toward these activities
3· If employed homemakers use certain work simplification methods to a greater extent than do full-time homemakers.
4. If there is any significant difference in accomplishment measured in terms of work units completed.
5. If there is a difference in the participation in church and community activities between the two groups.
