Resumen

This study uses most recent Spanish time-use data (2009-2010) to study the effect
that different work schedules have in the time spent on activities with the different family
members. We estimate a double-hurdle model that allows us to take into account the
clustering of a large proportion of observations at zero and deal with both the incidence and
the intensity of spending time in a particular time use. Our results show that the split-shift
has a negative association with family time and parent-child time, two activities that
improve the relationship among family members and improve the wellbeing of children.
Parents engage more in parent-child activities when their spouse is working the split shift
or evening shift. The negative effect that working an evening or split shift has on parentchild
time is smaller for women than for men. The opposite is observed with non-family
time.
