Kosovo Threshold - Labor Force & Time Use Survey
Summary: The MCC Kosovo LFTUS is designed to answer nine research questions. The first five were identified in the RFQ, whereas the remaining four were added after MCC held additional stakeholder workshops in Pristina. 1. What is the true level of employment (formal and informal), underemployment or vulnerable employment, and unemployment, disaggregated by gender and district? How much time have the un- or under-employed spent looking for a job? Are they an entrepreneur? 2. Is there a relationship between field of study and having employment? How many people are employed in the field that they studied? Are there any correlations between certain fields of study or location and unemployment? 3. For people not looking for jobs, why are they not looking? 4. What are people doing with their time? Especially, what are women or the unemployed doing with their time? How much time is spent on child care and elder care? How much time is spent commuting? 5. How does receiving remittances and/or the ability to work abroad impact labor market decisions? 6. How do attitudes about women's place in family and society influence women's participation in the labor market? 7. How is women's engagement in productive activities (like starting a business) related to ownership and ability to control assets/access to credit? 8. Have discriminatory practices in hiring or while employed, or perceptions that there might be such practices, discouraged women from seeking jobs? 9. What are the factors that inhibit entrepreneurship, especially for women vs. men, and lead to the low levels of entrepreneurial activity for men and/or women? The research team administered a nationally and regionally representative household survey to answer these nine questions. A stratified two-stage probability sampling plan was used, with primary sampling units as census enumeration areas and secondary sampling units as households. The survey was cross-sectional, with data collection occurring over a 16-week period between March and August of 2017.
