A national survey done by University of Michigan found that there was a 20 percent increase from 1965 to 1981 in the average number of hours men spent in caring for children and housework.
(B) caring for children and doing housework
(c) doing house work and child care

Why the one prefers over the other ?

C is best
original sentence extends the use of "caring" to children AND housework. You don't care for housework, you just do it
B is not a proper description of a survey data. There could be an increase at a specific task but not at a indefinite task such as caring. You cannot be spending more hours caring for someone, but you can be more caring of someone.
C extends the use of "doing" to housework AND child care and is most concise

I will go with B on this one.

The two pieces around "and" are not similar. "doing house work" is not a noun but "child care" is a noun

B is ok because

"doing house work" is parallel to "caring for children"

I think you are right. "doing" child care is not idiomatic. You can do babysitting but not childcare
