Gender and Urban Activity Patterns in Uppsala, Sweden

Abstract

This article focuses on the ways that gender-related roles affect the daily travel-activity patterns of a sample of Swedish urbanites. We use data of twelve measures to compare the travel-activity patterns of men and women employed full-time. The results of the analyses indicate that traditional gender roles remain in force even when the women of the household are employed full-time outside the home.
