CSDE Research & Highlights

Jeffrey Neilson and Co-Authors Examine the Time Costs of Unpaid Caregiving in Cross-National Study

CSDE visiting scholar Jeffrey Neilson, from Lund University (Sweden), co-authored a recent article that examined the time costs of unpaid caregiving across three distinct policy contexts.

The article appears in SSM – Population Health Issue 9 and the authors present results analyzing time use survey data from Sweden, the UK, and Canada from 2000 to 2015. Among a sample of men and women aged 50-74, they analyze how caregiving time is traded off against time in paid work and leisure. Their results illustrate how women provide more unpaid care in each country, but the impact of caregiving time on labor supply is similar for both men and women. Caregivers reduce time in paid work to provide caregiving to a greater extent in the UK and Canada, than they do in Sweden, while caregivers in Sweden reduce their leisure time. The study highlights how caregivers make labor and leisure tradeoffs and supports the idea that context may mitigate the labor market effects of unpaid care.

UW Today Spotlights Emily Williams

CSDE Affiliate and Associate Professor of Health Services Emily Williams is featured in a UW Today article on the longstanding collaboration between UW and the Veterans Affairs (VA) Puget Sound Health Care System. In 1982, the VA initiated a partnership between the UW School of Medicine and what is now called the Seattle-Denver Center of Innovation for Veteran-Centered and Value-Driven Care in 1982. The article describes this 37-year partnership to train public health and research leaders and highlights Dr. Williams’ research on increasing access to evidence-based treatment for unhealthy substance use and mentorship.  

“The VA’s clinical and research infrastructure and broad patient population enables us to address health services and population health issues that are critical to both Veterans and the broader research and public health community,” said Williams, who is a key researcher for this partnership through her roles as a VA Core Investigator and the Director of the PhD Program in Health Services.
