Colombian women contribute one fifth of economy without pay

Friday, September 22, 2017


A study recently published by Colombia’s Department of Statistics found that women work more hours per week than men and contribute to approximately one fifth of the country’s GDP without pay.

The study, based on national data collection on working hours and pay between 2012 and 2015, seeks to measure the domestic and non-paid work that men and women contribute to Colombia.
