Makeover Monday – Week 14

This week’s Makeover Monday looked at allocation of time-use in cooperation with Operation Fistula:

What I like:

  • Easy to see how much of total work is composed of unpaid work

What could be improved:

  • Hard to see how countries compare to each other
  • Hard to see how women and men compare to each other

What I built:

I wanted to put something together that would allow for easy viewing of all the countries without scrolling up or down. I also wanted to see how different men and women were in both their paid and unpaid work. As I experimented with some different combinations, I settled upon this one with paid work on the left, unpaid on the right, and a slope chart showing the gender breakdown. I found it very interesting to see the different patterns in each country and similarities among regional areas. Benin jumped out, as women work more paid and unpaid hours than men!
