Counting Women's Work was created in part to bring a gender perspective to the National Transfer Accounts (NTA) project, which produces a series of short bulletins showcasing project results and significance for policy. CWW research has been the focus of two bulletins, the second published in March 2018. NTA Bulletin No. 13. reveals the vast amount of economic activity that is “invisible” because unpaid care work not usually counted as part of the economy despite its central role in producing the market labor force of the future and sustaining social welfare. The bulletin argues for the necessity of more and better data on time use and unpaid care work to improve many economic, family, and social policy.
