Household work has been mainstreamed to women. Most literature on household chores is done on married men and very little empirical work has been done on Pakistan. This article investigated the household chores done by unmarried men and what is the effect of education on household chores done by unmarried men in Karachi. The objective of this study was to find out the effect of education, the number of women, and the number of household help on the household chores done by men. Different household chores such as doing laundry, shopping, and preparing meals were considered. Any irrelevant data was discarded. Primary data were gathered through a questionnaire. Significant findings were made and viable conclusions were reached and presented in this article. 151 men participated in this study with different educational backgrounds. 11.9% had done profession or honors, 27.2% were graduates, 13.9% had only school level education and the remaining 47% had done diploma. The results show that most of the men Shop for groceries(M=5.9, S.D=1.66), and the least chore they do is Laundry( M=4.0, S.D=1.88). The results show that men with the most education contribute more to household chores.
