" /> Abstract: This paper investigates the time allocation of women in Ghana as a trade-off between domestic chores and market-oriented activities when households are provided with water and electricity infrastructure. Using the Ghana Living Standards Survey, Round Four, we find that the time spent on remunerated activities increases when households are provided with electricity, while the supply of water reduces the time burden faced by rural women.
