This article proposes an 'equivalence scale for time' by which information about total working time in both paid and unpaid labour can be derived just from information about paid working time and household structure. Different scales are offered for males and females, and an adjustment according to year is also provided. These proposal is based on highly significant and robust OLS analyses of time-use surveys involving 99,137 respondents from 28 surveys in 13 western countries.
