- The objective of this research is to find out factors that may affect the housework participation and childcare involvement of Korean fathers. Using 2014 Time Use Data by Statistics Korea, factors related to three mainstream theories, namely time availability perspective, relative resource perspective and gender ideology perspective were selected. The effects of these factors on Korean fathers domestic involvement were tested through regression tests. The results are as follow.
First of all, it is found that time availability factors still remain powerful on affecting Korean fathers on both housework participation and childcare involvement.
Second, it is found that relative resource perspective is relatively weak among Korean fathers. Consistent to previous researches, education level difference within a couple is irrelevant to fathers household participation.
Third, it is newly discovered that gender ideology has significant effect on Korean fathers domestic involvements. Moreover, it is surprising that wives progressive sex-role attitude has significant but negative effect on fathers household participation if the fathers are of traditional attitude. Whether this trend will continue and the reasons behind require more qualitative and quantitative research to discover.
