Second Garment Worker Diaries Data Release: Linking Workers to Brands

Garment Worker Diaries, October 2019

"MFO was able to identify global brands that make their supplier factories public using Fashion Revolution’s Fashion Transparency Index Report, 2019. We were able to use the Open Apparel Registry to identify brands that source from Bangladesh."

Microfinance Opportunities (MFO) and SANEM have released the second round of data from its national Garment Worker Diaries in Bangladesh on the Garment Worker Diaries Data Portal. The data cover the period from July 2018 to March 2019. Workers reported to us each week on what they spent, earned, borrowed, and saved, what money transfers they gave and received, and how many hours they worked. In 2018 we were enrolling new participants every month, starting with about 200 in July and ending with 1,300 in December. From January onwards we have been collecting data from 1,300 respondents.
