Time Poverty, Work Status and Gender: The Case of Pakistan
Time is an important economic resource that can be spent in a variety of ways. Diverse demands on a personâ€™s time may reach a point where the individual may be categorized as time poor. Time poverty may vary across gender, occupational groups, industries, regions, and income levels. The present study focuses on measurement of time poverty and its incidence among these categories using Time Use Survey (TUS) 2007, the first nationwide time use survey for Pakistan. The results of this study provide some important insights into the phenomenon of time poverty in Pakistan and lead to some interesting conclusions. [PIDE Working Papers No. 81].
