This research paper is aimed to find the correlation between women’s household activities hours and the gender wage gap. We gathered data from U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistic (BLS) and the World Bank. In this paper, we considered serval independent variables to control the data, in order to get the most accurate result. We are taking GDP, population growth and women’s median annual wage to control the macro part, and taking women’s working hours, education attainments, and labor force participation rate and fertility rate to control micro part. Using a multiple linear regression to determine the influence level of these eight independent variables on the dependent variable, which is the gender gap. Our results indicates that women’s household activities hours are no significant to the gender wage gap. However, due to the lack of data and the minor flaw in the model, the result of this paper is not final. This topic still needs further research.
