Women and men engage in a range of activities on a daily basis. These include paid and unpaid work, domestic work, care work, volunteer work, education and learning, culture and sports, socializing and leisure, and personal care. Time-use Surveys provide data on the time spent on these various activities by women and men and allow for the analysis of gender-based differences in time allocation patterns across these activities. They are the only source for SDG indicator 5.4.1.
The Time-use Survey in Georgia was conducted for the first time in 2020-2021. This statistical report captures the methodology and findings of the survey and presents the key indicators on the time spent and participation rates on different activities by area of residence and by selected population characteristics, focusing on gender differences.
The Georgia Time-use Survey was conducted by UN Women and the National Statistics Office of Georgia within the framework of the “Good Governance for Gender Equality” project, supported by the Women Count programme.
