Total Working Time by Type of Work and Sex.
Definition According to the resolution of the Nineteenth International Conference of Labour Statisticians

“Work is any activity performed by persons of any sex and age to produce goods or to provide services for use by others or for own use”


Time-use surveys were processed and to calculate the indicator of total working time following the resolution of the Nineteenth International Conference of Labour Statisticians and the latest revision of CAUTAL 2015:

• Total work time is the sum of paid work time and unpaid work time.
• Paid work refers to work done for the production of goods or services for the market and is calculated as the sum of time devoted to employment, job search and commuting.
• Unpaid work refers to work done without payment and develops mainly in the private sphere. It is measured by quantifying the time a person spent on self consumption work, unpaid domestic work and unpaid care for their own home or to support other household work or the community.
Unit of measurement hours
Methodology

Total work time (TWT) = Paid work time(PWT) + Unpaid work time (UWT)

Paid work time is calculated by dividing the sum of the hours spent on paid work activities to the number of people who reported having participated in paid and/or unpaid work activities .

Unpaid work time is calculated by dividing the sum of the hours spent on unpaid work activities to the number of people who reported having participated in paid and/or unpaid work activities.

It is expressed in hours (weekly / daily) and tenths.

Persons aged 15 years or above are considered for this indicator.

The heterogeneity of the data sources does not allow comparability between countries, so it is not recommended to use this data for the calculation of regional averages.
