2019 Time Use Data for Sociological Research Workshop
DATE: Tuesday, August 13th, 8:30am - 10:10pm
LOCATION: Murray Hill West (conference room), Hilton Midtown, New York City
COST: Free for ASA registrants. No advance registration required.
Our workshop goal is to promote awareness of and expertise in the IPUMS Time Use data archive: the American Time Use Survey (ATUS-X), the American Heritage Time Use Study (AHTUS-X), and the Multinational Time Use Study (MTUS-X). This archive makes large U.S. and international databases with detailed data on time use more easily accessible to researchers.
By combining data over time and across countries and enriching information available across household members, IPUMS data facilitates research on how time use influences the health of families and individuals, how household health behaviors respond to changing conditions, and how health and well-being differ across cultural and policy settings.In this workshop, attendees will:
- Become familiar with the breadth and depth of data available through IPUMS Time Use.
- Learn how to assess appropriateness of ATUS, AHTUS, and MTUS data for specific research topics.
- Understand how to navigate the IPUMS Time Use web-based extract system.
- Develop skill to create custom extracts that include user-defined time use variables.
