(May 2016) Since its inception in 2003, the American Time Use Survey (ATUS) has generated data that is essential to understanding how Americans spend their time when they are not officially “on the job” – from child care and household chores to commuting and sleep patterns. Measuring these aspects of daily life provides insights into the vast sector of non-wage productivity, and the ATUS has informed such important policy issues as workplace flexibility, food deserts, obesity, eldercare and childcare. Join us for a discussion about the ATUS, including significant findings, policy implications, and the future of the survey itself.

This is a widely attended event relevant to official duties.
