Unpaid Work (the module in the SLFS)

The «unpaid work module» provides data on domestic, childcare and voluntary work in Switzerland. The questions identify the different unpaid activities and record the time spent on them. This group of questions on unpaid work is included in the SLFS every three to four years. The relatively wide spectrum of the SLFS enables data to be disaggregated in many different ways.
