The time use study will measure and analyse the time spent from day-to-day by different individuals - women and men, girls and boys, rural and urban, rich and poor - on all major activities. The study will provide greater understanding to policy-makers on the economic and social well-being of different groups. It will provide new information on the division of both paid and unpaid labour between women and men and other groupings. It will provide greater insight into reproductive and leisure activities of household members, as well as into less well understood productive activities such as subsistence work, casual work and work in the informal sector.
