This publication offers a representative sample of the thinking developed over recent years in relation to time use, time-use measurement and related policies in Latin America. The issue of care and its importance and meaning have become part of the gender agenda in the region, especially since the tenth session of the Region Conference on Women in Latin America and the Caribbean, held in Quito in 2007.



Models of the intrahousehold division of total labour: Ecuador and Mexico

The aim of this report is to provide a more in-depth study into the distribution of total labour (paid and unpaid) among the members of different types of household and analyse the determining factors. A distinction is made between two-parent, lone-parent and extended households, because work is organized according to different rationales within them, based on the sexual and inter-generational division of labour. The cases of Ecuador and Mexico are studied on the basis of time-use, employment and income surveys in both countries.
