Yale University

For Research On Reproductive Health In Ghana

Overview
This grant would support research to understand the trends and differences in women’s productivity and empowerment in Ghana, and the consequences of empowerment on the welfare of women and their children. The proposed research will analyze trends in women’s paid employment, self-employment, and home production using data from the Ghana Panel Survey. It will examine factors that impact women’s time allocation and productivity, such as local crop and industrial composition, women’s control of land and other assets, and education. Developing this framework for women’s economic productivity will provide a means to compare how alternative policies can facilitate women’s empowerment.
