Expert Group Meeting on Methods for Conducting
Time-use Surveys (23-27 October 2000

The Expert Group Meeting on Methods for Conducting Time-use Surveys was convened as part of the work of the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) on time-use statistics under a project funded by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the International Development Research Centre/Canada on Gender Issues and the Measurement of Paid and Unpaid Work. The meeting discussed methodological guidelines for the conduct of time-use surveys and reviewed the further development of the trial United Nations International Classification of Activities for Time-Use Statistics. The papers prepared for the meeting and the discussion will provide the major input to a methodological publication that the Statistics Division is preparing to assist developing countries in carrying out time-use surveys.
