A new study from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development is examining how household chores get divided up in the home. 

They surveyed 28 developed countries all around the world. The results? Apparently women still do a majority of all housework.

In the United States, women work an average total of 50.9 hours per week. That's just over 27 hours spent on chores, and just under 28 hours in a workplace.

Men spend more time at work, but less time working overall. They put in an average of 50.6 hours - 33 hours in a workplace, and just under 18 around the house.
