No wp-2017-119, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: This paper aims to study the impact of migration on labour supply and time-use of women left behind in Kyrgyzstan. Using the household survey data for 2011, labour supply is measured by occupational choices and working hours. Apart from the labour supply data, this study uses detailed information on daily time-use, which is analysed within women's occupations.
