Situation of unpaid work and gender in the Caribbean: The measurement of unpaid work through time-use studies
This study seeks to provide information on time use studies and how they can contribute to the measurement of unpaid work, a sector in which many more women than men are employed, as an avenue towards the development of policies to support and promote women’s economic empowerment. The first sections provide definitions of unpaid work and time use studies, while the latter sections provide information on time use methodologies that have been used to collect statistical data on unpaid work.
