Global Meeting on Population and the Generational Economy, August 2020
Presentation: B. Piedad Urdinola, Jorge Tovar, Gender bonus and aging in Colombia
The preliminary estimates of NTTA for Colombia that uses the latest national representative time use survey (2016/2017) shows that women spend, at all age, more time than men to produce unpaid domestic work and the largest fraction of that production is child care (Figure 1). The Colombian time use includes caring for people of all ages and Figure 2 shows the results per gender that exemplifies that the largest fraction of care production is childcare, and that are women of all ages providing it. In particular, the peak of time devoted to care is women at age 22 taking care of children under 5. The peak of caring for children in school ages 5 to 18 is 10 hours at age 33 for women. In contrast, men devote one fifth of care for under five children and one third for school age children in Colombia.
