Estimating the volume of unpaid activities in Canada, 1992: CS12-0043/10E-PDF

an evaluation of data from the General Social Survey /

"Unpaid activities account for a substantial proportion of total productive activities in most countries, yet are not included in official calculations of economic activity such as the Gross Domestic Product. Proposals have been made to include unpaid activities in national accounting figures, but considerable disagreement remains over what activities to include, how to value them, and an appropriate data collection method to use. This paper addresses the suitability of various approaches to the measurement of time-use, widely accepted as the best method for quantifying unpaid activities"--Abstract.
