Measuring Women and Men’s Work : Summary of Main Findings and Recommendations from a Joint ILO and World Bank Study in Sri Lanka (Inglês)

Between 2017 and 2019, the International Labor Organization (ILO) and World Bank completed a multistage pilot study, in collaboration with the Department of Census and Statistics (DCS) of Sri Lanka, with the objective of developing guidance, for various types of household surveys, on good practices in the measurement of women and men’s work, as defined in the standards adopted by the 19th International Conference of Labor Statisticians (ICLS). The Sri Lanka pilot study was designed to enable a comparison of the outcomes of two types of household surveys, namely, the labor force survey (LFS) and the multitopic living standards survey (MLSS). The findings and their implications have been described in a joint ILO and World Bank report. A selection of the main findings is highlighted and further elaborated in the report. It focuses on some of the key lessons that should be considered by anyone seeking to design a household survey to measure participation in work in line with the latest standards.
