Counting Women’s Work
The paper written by our colleagues Robert Gal and Lili Vargha in cooperation with Endre Szabo of the Institute of Economics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences is summarized in a Research in Brief of the Counting Women’s Work (CWW) Project. CWW is a project within the National Transfer Accounts (NTA) research network. It will provide data and analysis to help develop better policies around economic development, care for children and the elderly, investments in human capital, and gender equity in the workplace and the home. Currently it involves nine low- and middle-income countries around the world, namely: Colombia, Costa Rica, Ghana, India, Kenya, Mexico, Senegal, South Africa and Vietnam. The project is coordinated by the University of California, Berkeley; the Development Policy Research Unit, University of Cape Town; and the East-West Center, Honolulu.
