Harmonizing data on the gendered economy across Europe
The AGENTA project is a mult-national, multi-year research effort supported by the European Union. It maintains its own website, linked here. The methodology in this research was developed in concert with that used in all NTA/CWW research so that all AGENTA estimates are generally compared with those produced by other NTA and CWW research groups.
Estimates from the project are available here:
That link has tabs for NTA market-based estimates by sex, as well as National Time Transfer Accounts (NTTA) estimates of the non-market unpaid care work economy by sex. Each tab has extensive technical documentation as well.
A group of European researchers have used CWW methodology to produce the article “Household production and consumption over the life cycle: National Time Transfer Accounts in 14 European countries“ published in the journal Demographic Research.
We are pleased to announce the three winners of the Gender Paper Prize at the 11th Global Meeting of the NTA Network, held in Dakar in June 2016. The winning papers feature results from Senegal, Costa Rica, and comparative work covering many countries in Europe.
CWW infographics summarize the market-based and unpaid care work economy in a country. This post shows the infographic for Spain.
The Counting Women's Work project presented a special session at the 38th International Association of Time Use Research (IATUR) Conference, hosted in Seoul, South Korea, July 2016. The session provided a useful opportunity to engage more closely with the time-use research community.
Affiliated CWW researchers have publisehd "The age-profile of invisible transfers: The true size of asymmetry in inter-age reallocations" by Róbert Gál, Endre Szabó, and Lili Vargha.
