The Colombia team was one of the early research groups to use the time use survey fielded in Colombia during 2012 and 2013.  Results have been published and presented in academic, government, and NGO forums, highlighting the value of unpaid care work.  The Colombia team has also had a particular emphasis on exploring patterns by education level, in order to understand how inequality impacts the care economy and policy interventions around care, gender equality, aging, and growth.
