The purpose of this analysis is to examine determinants of husbands' participation in domestic work and child-care in Japan. Using a multivariate analysis of data from the 1999 National Family Research in Japan, this study explored the factors that affect husbands' participation in these activities. Findings indicated that the need for household labor, couples' time availability, income disparity between spouses, gender role ideology, and husbands' level of education were significant determinants of their household behavior. The factors determining child-care behavior were different from those of household labor: the need for child-care, time availability, and level of education were consistent determinants, but income disparity between spouses and gender role ideology were not found to be significant.
