Living Standards Measurement Survey 1991 - Pakistan: Family Labor

The Family Labor measure includes 6 items from the 1991 Pakistan Integrated Household Survey. Asked of females ages 10 years and older, the items focus on time spent on activities or chores for the household (e.g., gathering water, caretaking, cleaning, and cooking-related activities) in the past 7 days. The Pakistan Integrated Household Survey is a national, multi-province survey included in the Living Standards Measurement Study, aimed at understanding the impact of policies on the living standards of households. 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.
