Time Use and Economic Well-Being
This conference was part of the Levy Institute's research and policy program of the distribution of income and wealth. Its purpose was to cover issues and topics related to time allocation. Presentations focused on utilizing time-use data in investigating the determinants of time allocation by gender and other demographic and economic characteristics (for example, family-type or employment status), valuing unpaid household work, developing measures of individual or household economic well-being that include unpaid household production, and analyzing the distribution of household production and augmented measures of household well-being. The papers also addressed problems of statistical methodology and data in dealing with these topics.
The conference was held October 28-29, 2005 at the Levy Institute conference center located at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York.
