Productive and Reproductive Choices: Report of a Pilot Survey of Urban Working Women in Karachi
The primary objective of the survey was to collect information on women’s productive and reproductive choices within the broader context of the conditions in their household. Since women bear the main responsibility of domestic work and child care, their employment outside the house is closely interrelated with household decisions pertaining to fertility, division of domestic duties, etc. Hence, to clearly understand the linkages between work status and domestic roles of women, it is necessary to collect data on both demographic and socio-economic aspects of the household.
