Time use changes in the Netherlands: The analytical strength of a time-use module

This paper first summarizes the discussion around the construction of a household satellite account and then continues to present the extension of the Dutch National Accounts with a time-use module. The module is developed to investigate the potential of data on paid and unpaid labour measured in time-units to serve the purpose of analyses, while keeping the link with the SNA framework and bypassing the issue of the valuation of unpaid labour.
