The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organisation comprised of wealthy nations. Among its other functions the OECD gathers and releases some data relevant to the men's rights movement.

OECD data on paid and unpaid work done by men and women shows that in most countries the difference in total work is minimal when paid & unpaid work are added together. Moreover the OECD data does not include commute times which would drive up the total for men. Nor does it factor in the difficulty of the work, with men being far more likely to work outside and in more strenuous occupations.

The table below was drawn from OECD data on October 2, 2020.[1]

The Percentage Difference is the Absolute Difference divided by the time worked by women and multiplied by 100 to arrive at a percentage.
