Sri Lanka Time Use Survey - 2017
Time Use Surveys (TUS) are household-based surveys that measure and analyze time spent by women and men, girls and boys on different activities over a specified period. The results of the Time Use Survey enable one to identify what activities are performed, how they are performed and how long it takes to perform such activities.
The Department of Census and Statistics (DCS) conducted the first Sri Lanka national survey on time use statistics in 2017. The primary objective of TUS is to measure the participation of men and women in paid and unpaid activities. Moreover, the TUS report contains information on the time spent on unpaid care giving activities, voluntary work, and domestic service of the household members. Also provides information on time spent on learning, socializing, leisure activities and self-care activities of 10 years and above aged Sri Lankans.
