This topic has been updated with 2016 Census data for all areas. What's this?

In Skye 18% of the population over 15 did more than 14 hours of housework each week in 2016.

There has been increased interest in identifying, acknowledging and valuing the unpaid work that supports home and community life. The changing amount of time spent on unpaid housework in different Household Types and, particularly the distribution of this work within the household, can indicate the changing roles of males, females and older children in society. The level of unpaid domestic work in Skye may also be related to Household Income, as higher income households are able to outsource some of these tasks.

Derived from the Census question:

'In the last week did the person spend time doing unpaid domestic work for their household?'

Persons aged 15 years and over.
