This chapter observes that the decade of 2005–15 witnessed rapid expansion of time-use surveys in Latin America at an unprecedented rate. It discusses the different methodological approaches used in Latin American countries in the context of the on-going regional debate in the continent, mainly related to use of 24-hour time diary versus modular surveys using that use stylized questions. Though some experts in the region have a highly positive view about the use of stylized questions of data collection, the author does not quite agree, as she believes that time-use surveys based on 24-hour time diary give sound and reliable data. The author suggests open dialogue on this subject where both the ideas are presented along with selected global experts.

Keywords:   time-use surveys, data collection, 24-hour time diary, stylized methods of data collection, modular survey, methodological approach
