The Event

IPUMS Time Use (timeuse.ipums.org) offers free, harmonized time diary data from the U.S. and around the world. These data facilitate comparative research and analysis of individuals within family contexts. Time use data are frequently used in demographic research, with a strong emphasis on examining how time use both reflects and reinforces gendered experiences across the life course. These data, however, are underutilized in population health research despite the emphasis on social determinants of health and life course health and well-being. This virtual workshop will focus on using IPUMS Time Use data to investigate work, family, and well-being before and during the Pandemic. Our goals are to describe the time diary data available via IPUMS, to demonstrate how to access the data, and to highlight their utility for exploring work, family, and well-being during the Pandemic.

About the Award and Recipients

The Center for Families at Purdue University and the Boston College Center for Work & Family established the Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award in 2000 to raise the awareness of high-quality work-family research among the scholar, consultant, and practitioner communities. The Kanter Award identifies the highest-quality research in this interdisciplinary field each year and is now among the most prestigious recognitions in the work-life field.

No applications or nominations are accepted for this award; instead, a panel of over 70 reviewers from more than a dozen countries examine all articles published in a given year in more than 80 leading English-language journals from around the world.

After finalists are determined by the review committee, members of the National Workforce Roundtable, (hosted by the Boston College Center for Work and Family) are asked to review the articles to identify which of the ‘best of the best’ studies has the greatest potential for impacting workplace practices.

National Workforce Roundtable members are human resources professionals representing some of the world’s leading employers and collectively more than 4 million employees. As the Kanter Award continues to partner with these employers, the awareness of high-quality work-family research continues to rise, and actionable findings from the best studies become more accessible business communities to inform policy and best practices.

The Center for Families at Purdue University

The Center for Families provides a way for faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends of Purdue to help improve the quality of life for families. We serve as a catalyst to integrate outreach, teaching, and research activities that support families. We increase and enhance collaboration among academic disciplines, professionals, policymakers, corporations, and community organizations to bring about change focused on families. Find out more about the Center for Families.

Boston College Center for Work and Family

Founded in 1990, the Boston College Center for Work and Family is committed to enhancing the quality of life of today’s workforce by providing leadership for the integration of work and life, an essential for business and community success. We serve as a bridge between the worlds of academia and corporate practice, bringing together the world’s top scholars and thought leaders to influence organizational strategy and policy. Our learning and networking community, the Boston College Workforce Roundtable, brings together employers committed to excellence in work-life to shape responses to the demands of work, home, and community in order to enhance employee effectiveness. Find out more about the Center for Work and Family.

Presenters

Amy Raub, Principal Research Analyst WORLD Policy Analysis Center, University of California Los Angeles, Fielding School of Public Health

Event Description
Laws and policies fundamentally shape workers’ ability to balance work and family responsibilities.  New data tools from the WORLD Policy Analysis Center enable in-depth and comparative analysis of the laws and policies that matter to caregiving responsibilities across the lifecourse for all 193 UN member states.  In this workshop, WORLD’s Principal Research Analyst and co-author of Equality within Our Lifetimes, Amy Raub, will share how to access, download, and use these freely available data tools, spanning topics from caregiving discrimination at work to paid leave for care responsibilities from infancy through old age. She will also provide a background on the rigorous double coding methodology used to construct the detailed indicators that provide insights on adequacy of legal provisions and whether policies are designed to reach and meet the needs of all workers and families. Data use cases will be included to highlight how these data have been and can be used to promote evidence-based policymaking and advocacy, make structural inequalities and their impact transparent, and expand evidence of the impact of strengthening laws and policies on gender equality, health, economies, and other outcomes.
