Notes

Abstract:
This 22-page document is an evaluation for allocation studies. The first page Includes the sections Introduction and the question Why Time Allocation Studies? The Introduction mentions that normally allocation studies are frequently used to describe gender and age based labor patterns. To answer the question it is because time is a resource. The General Characteristics Of The Methodology mention that there will not be much of a discussion to many of the methods because they vary. The Information Structure is determined by the purpose of the research. Information Gathering mentions that the information was collected with the use of the 1) respondent recall, 2) direct observation by the investigator, and 3) farm household record keeping. The following section is Sampling, which discusses the sample size, the temporal units, and boundaries of the research. The following section is Interpretations of Time Use Data which describes how the time use studies have been treated and standardized for errors. The Summary explains that the previous pages were a conceptual framework. The next case study is the Time Allocation At Lake Balinsasayad. The first section in this case study is the Site and Project Background. The section explains the community and project activities that were in the area. The following section is Time Allocation Methods where each method is described for the project. The project was conducted between April 1984 to July 1985. The following section is Comparison of Methods: Quality of Data. The data is mentioned to have the best representation when the sample size was large. The following section mentions the Bias of the study as being that the people being observed caused a source of bias. The Costs and Benefits of the projects are described as well as the Analysis and Results. The Activities Breakdown starts on page 11. The Activities mentioned are outlined on Tables 1 and 2. The following sections are Join and Individual Activities, Location of Activities, and Sustainability of Household Members. The next following large section is Conclusion: Implications For FSR. Acknowledgments are on pages 16-19. On page 20 is Appendix A that go more into Site and Project Background. Appendix B is on page 21 which includes Table B-1, Frequency of Males and Females in Comprehensive Case Studies and Table B-2, Frequency of Males and Females in Survey. Appendix C which includes the Activity Categories.
