Sanjiv Gupta is an associate professor in the Department of Sociology. His research is concentrated in the areas of family and gender, with a particular focus on time spent on housework and other activities such as leisure and socializing. Current projects include an examination of class inequalities among women with respect to their time spent on housework, exercise, sleep, and leisure; a cross-national comparison of the relationship between women's earnings and their time spent on housework; and an analysis of period trends in the U.S. divorce rate. The data for these studies come from the National Survey of Families and Households (U.S.), Panel Study of Income Dynamics (U.S.), and similar large datasets from other countries.
