The survey is set to start from January 24, following a training program for officials concerned

Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) in collaboration with UN Women Bangladesh on Sunday launched a training program on the Time Use Survey (TUS) 2021 under the Making Every Women and Girl Count Bangladesh (MEWGC) program.

The TUS initiative aims to measure Women’s unpaid care work burden and will generate data on the proportion of time spent on domestic and care work, segregated by sex, age and location, according to a UN Women press release.

A total of 200 enumerators, supervisors and district level officials of BBS attended the inauguration. The training program will continue for six days and data collection for the survey will start from January 24.

Mohammad Yamin Chowdhury, chief guest of the inauguration and secretary of the Statistics and Information Division (SID) under the Ministry of Planning, stressed the need to measure the unaccounted work of women.

He suggested assigning monetary values to the different kinds of unaccounted work and comparing it with the national GDP to highlight the volume of unrecognized work by women.

SID Additional Secretary Muhammad Meshbaul Alam attended the inauguration as a special guest, while UN Women Bangladesh Officer-in-Charge Dilruba Haider was the guest of honour. BBS Director General Mohammad Tajul Islam chaired the session.
