    Abstract

    This paper looks at the issue of “invisibility” of women’s work in the context of the National Sample Surveys and Census in the 1990s. Moreover it critically looks at the System of National Accounts 1993 which is the basis of the National Sample Surveys and Census. It further shows the advantages that Time Use Survey has over the other two in capturing women’s work in a better way and hence recommends its use alongwith National Sample Surveys. Finally it also looks at the trends of the female work force across the 1990s wherein we see a growing concentration of women workers in the lower rungs of the labor market.
