The Jobs and Time Use measure includes a multi-response item from the Living Standards Survey conducted in 2010 in Nepal. This measure assesses the amount of time respondents and their fellow household members spend on activities such cooking and preparing food, cleaning, caring for children and community service. In particular, one records the hours per week spent on each activity for him/herself as well as for all other people over the age of five currently living in the same house. Navigational aspects (i.e. skip-out patterns and next question sequences) have not been included on this page but can be viewed on the original questionnaire located here.
