Minutes spent in well-being module eligible activities


WBELIGTIME is a four-digit numeric variable.


WBELIGTIME indicates the number of minutes that Well-being Module respondents spent in activities that were eligible (see WBELIG) to be one of the three randomly selected activities about which respondents reported momentary well-being.

Only Well-being Module respondents (see WB_RESP) have non-zero values for this variable. Any ATUS respondent who did not respond to the Well-being Module have a value of zero for this variable.

These data were collected as part of the Well-being Module of the ATUS interview. Research using this variable without activity-level quality of life data should apply WBWT as the weight in analyses; research using this variable in conjunction with activity-level quality of life data should use AWBWT for analyses.
