The research reported here builds on our earlier work on sex differences in the allocation of effort. In our earlier analysis of data from a repre- sentative sample of the working population (Bielby and Bielby 1985), we found that women allocate significantly more effort to work than do men with comparable job and family responsibilities. We extend those findings with analyses of patterns of allocation of work effort among men and women professionals and managers.
