WHERE reports the location of the activity.

WHERE is recorded for all activities except sleeping (0101xx), grooming (0102xx), personal activities (0104xx), "respondent refused to answer" (500105), and "respondent didn't remember" (500106).

This variable is available via extracts that are hierarchical or rectangular (activity) (more info on extract formats). If you request a hierarchical extract and plan to construct time use variables in your statistics package, this variable may be useful to you. If you request a rectangular extract and plan to construct time use variables through the extract system, WHERE will not be included in your extract, as persons are the unit of observation for rectangular extracts rather than activity or who records.


Three locations (bank, gym/health club, and post office) were added in October 2004. Prior to that date, those locations would have been classified as "other place."


  • All activities except sleeping, grooming, personal activities, respondent refused to answer, and respondent didn't remember.
