Proportion of time spent on unpaid domestic and care work is calculated by dividing the average
number of hours spent on unpaid domestic and care work each day by 24 hours.
Time spent on unpaid domestic and care work refers to the average time women and men spend on
household provision of services for own consumption. Domestic and care work includes food
preparation, dishwashing, cleaning and upkeep of a dwelling, laundry, ironing, gardening, caring for
pets, shopping, installation, servicing and repair of personal and household goods, childcare, and care of
the sick, elderly or disabled household members, among others. Time spent on unpaid domestic and
care work as well as on community or volunteer work constitutes the overall time spent on “unpaid
work”. Community or volunteer work includes volunteer services for organizations, unpaid community
work, and informal help to other households, among other activities. Activities included in unpaid work
are not included within the SNA production boundary but are part of the SNA General Production
Boundary. As much as possible, data compiled by UNSD are based on the International Classification
of Activities for Time Use Statistics (ICATUS), according to which paid and unpaid work are
delineated by the SNA production boundary.
