20 August 9 - 10:30 am ET
The webinar, Measuring time use and quantifying care: Challenges and strategies in the design and harmonization of time-use surveys, will present the key findings of the studies by Nancy Folbre and Jacques Charmes from their recent research with UN Women on better methodological approaches to design and conduct time-use surveys, as well as to improve comparability and methods of harmonization across national surveys. It will also provide an opportunity to present an update on the work of the UN Expert Group on Innovative and Effective Ways to Collect Time-Use Statistics (EG-TUS) as part of the global conversation around time use.
The webinar is organized by the Global Centre of Excellence on Gender Statistics (CEGS), which is part of the Women Count programme.
