This chapter reviews the time-use surveys in the selected 35 countries of Asia-Pacific region to see how far these countries have been able to produce sound time-use data and how far the data has been useful in designing national policies. It studies the strengths and weaknesses of the concepts, methods, and classifications used by these countries in conducting time-use surveys. It explains why some countries have not yet conducted a national time-use survey, and why the countries that have conducted a national time-use survey have not mainstreamed the survey in their respective national statistical systems. It also identifies their constraints and problems, and recommends the measures that they need for mainstreaming time-use surveys in their respective national statistical systems.

Keywords:   Asia-Pacific countries, strengths and weaknesses of the time-use surveys, recommendations, time-use data, national time-use survey, constraints
