Analysing time use data

Time use surveys are often more challenging to analyse than many other social surveys, and typically some data manipulation is necessary to derive basic estimates. This is particularly true when accessing the episode file is needed.

CTUR would like to help users by putting a collection/series of resources and materials that can help users in a single place.

This site/website is constant progress, and we plan to continue adding materials. If you wish to be notified every time new materials are added, register to access our MTUS database.
