It will estimate the number and proportion of domestic workers at national and state levels
The first ever All All India Survey on Domestic Workers was flagged off by Union Minister for Labour and Employment Bhupender Yadav on Monday.
The survey is being conducted by Labour Bureau, Chandigarh.
The Union Minister said that this survey shows the commitment of the government towards having an evidence based, data driven policy which will help in targeted and last mile delivery of services.
The minister further stated that all these All India Surveys & the e-shram portal will be a game changer & set new standards in data driven policies.
Domestic workers (DWs) constitute a significant portion of total employment in the informal sector. However, there is a dearth of data on the magnitude and prevailing employment conditions of DW, the Ministry of Labour and Employment said.
The All India Survey on Domestic Workers is aimed to estimate the number and proportion of domestic workers at National and State level, percentage distribution of domestic workers with respect to Live-in/Live-out, formal/ Informal Employment, Migrant/Non-Migrant, their wages and other socio-economic characteristics.
The survey will also provide the Household Estimates of Live-in/Live-out domestic workers and the average number of domestic workers engaged by different types of households, the ministry said.
The main objectives of the survey are:
* Estimate the number/proportion of DWs at National and State level.
* Household Estimates of Live-in/ Live-out DWs.
* Average number of DWs engaged by different types of households.
