Married Women's Time Use and Productivity: Evidence from 1963

Maria Stanfors, Lund University

This study is focused on married women's time use in Sweden in the early 1960s using newly created time diary data. I describe the digitization of this historical time diary data and discuss what is available in the data. The timing of this survey is unique and beneficial for studying married women's use of time and daily productivity because during the mid-1960s market work came to play a larger part of women's life, since young women worked until they had children and older married women returned to the labour force after having raised a family.
