About the product

This study fills a significant gap in data collection - information on unpaid household work. It defines household production, delimits its significant components and shows how data can be collected. It presents cost-effective tools for measuring and valuing unpaid contributions to social and economic development and a general framework for the classification of activities to facilitate activity measurement and its integration into the accounting framework. It also examines current state-of-the-art data collection practices.
