TIME SPENT IN SMALL HOUSEHOLD BUSINESSES

The Time Spent in Small Household Businesses – China measure includes 5 items from the 2015 China Economic, Population, Nutrition, and Health Survey also referred to as the China Health and Nutrition Survey (CHNS). These items focus on the time spent working in different types of small businesses in the past year in terms of months, days, and hours. The CHNS is a multi-province survey aimed at understanding how social, economic, and governmental policies (e.g., family planning efforts) affect the health and nutrition of Chinese residents. Navigational aspects (i.e. skip-out patterns) have not been included on this page but can be viewed on the original questionnaire here.
