outline
Outline
  • Welcome, introductions, what we hope to accomplish
  • Brief terminology review
  • Overview of NTTA estimation strategy
  • What data are necessary? What data do you have?
    • Applies to both regular NTA by sex and NTTA (National Time Transfer Accounts) by sex
  • Time Use Survey Questionnaire
goals
Goals
  • Estimate age profiles of production and consumption of time by sex
    • Both time and monetary units
  • Estimate NTA labor income and consumption age profiles by sex
  • Discuss strategy for computing other NTA and NTTA age profiles
    • Transfers, asset-based reallocations
brief terminology review
Brief Terminology Review
  • NTA vs. NTTA
  • Age shape + macro control = age profile
  • National accounts, system of national accounts (SNA)
  • Household
  • Household production/unpaid work/time use/productive time
  • Market work/market time
ntta estimation strategy
NTTA Estimation Strategy
  • Production
    • Get available time use survey, learn to use it
    • Identify time spent on 11 different household productive activities
    • Compute age- and sex-specific average time spent in those activities
    • Find appropriate wages to impute for 11 activities
  • Consumption
    • Impute age of consumption of time produced based on assumptions and time use survey definitions
    • Compute age- and sex-specific average time consumed
data for nta by sex
Data for NTA by Sex
  • National account data (for computing macro controls)
    • Only computed for total population (no controls by sex)
  • Household survey
    • Nationally representative
    • Includes income and consumption (although some countries use different surveys for different profiles)
    • Has household roster by age and sex (and other categories of interest)
  • Administrative or other supplementary age shape data
  • Population Data
    • By age and sex
data for ntta by sex
Data for NTTA by Sex
  • No national account data
    • But other researchers may have estimated household production
  • Time use survey
    • Nationally representative
    • Complete household roster by age and sex, even for those in the household who do not give time use information
    • Same time period as NTA estimates, if possible
    • Sample represents a calendar year
  • Wage data
    • Results of national survey of wages by occupation
    • If that is not available, can use NTA household survey if sufficiently detailed occupation data is included and survey is large enough
  • Population data (same as for NTA)
time use survey questionnaire
Time Use Survey Questionnaire
  • When is the year of your survey? During what months were the actual interviews conducted?
  • How many respondents are there in the survey?
  • Is it nationally representative, or just for a sub-region or group in the country?
  • What time period are respondents asked to account for? A day? A week?
  • How many time respondents per household? Do you know the age and sex of others in the respondents’ households, or just the respondent?
  • What is the name of the survey weight variable you will use to generate accurate age- and sex-specific means?
  • Can respondents indicate multiple activities for a single unit of time, or do they have to designate just one activity at a time?
  • Do the hours in a day add up to 24 for each respondent, or is it possible for people to answer so that they account for more or less than 24 hours in a day?
  • For childcare activity variables, is there an age range specified for the children? Similarly, is there an age range given for elder care or care for other adults?
lab session 1
Lab Session 1
  • Produce a plot of average time accounted for in all activities (total time)
    • By age and sex
    • Make sure to use survey weights if available
    • Example for US 2009 (imputes time to force it to equal 24 hours/day for everyone):
