Household Production

We think of the household itself as a social unit that produces things like employment income and harvests of traditional food. We discuss these activities under the "Hunting-Herding" and "Employment" concepts.

In addition, however, are many other activities needed to run a household. The following are relevant variables:

MIXECON Mix of full time job and active subsistence (6 or more subsistence activities mentioned) 0 'neither FT job or active subsistence' 1 'FT job' 2 'active subsistence' 3 'both FT job-active subsistence'

HELPMIX Most important way respondent contributes to household 0 'neither job nor subsistence' 1 'job' 2 'subsistence' 3 'both job and subsistence'

HELPJOB Respondent mentions work and income as most important contribution to household.

HELPSUB Respondent mentions hunting, fishing and/or traditional household activities as most important contribution to household.

HELPHM Respondent mentions homemaker activities and childcare as most important contribution to household.
