American Time Use Survey Data Extract Builder

ATUS-X is a project dedicated to making it easy for researchers to use data from the American Time Use Survey (ATUS). The ATUS is an ongoing time diary study that is funded by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and fielded by the U.S. Census Bureau. The goals of the ATUS-X project are:

  • To collect and preserve ATUS data and documentation
  • To harmonize the data from different years of data collection
  • To make it easy to create data files containing the ATUS variables a user needs

Time is our scarcest resource...use it wisely!
