The Centre for Time Use Research is a world-leading, multidisciplinary research group based in the University of Oxford's Department of Sociology. Our team of researchers – which includes sociologists, economists, and demographers – work with Time Use Data to answer questions on society, work, gender, economics, and many other areas of academic interest.
You can read summaries of the CTUR Everyday Life UK Time Use Survey, our collaborations with the Millennium Cohort Survey time diaries, and the American Heritage Time Use Study Data Extract System in the new issue of the eIJTUR out today (all lists on the left side of our home page). Both the Everyday Life and MCS data will be available to researchers in 2016. The AHTUS data is available now.
The MCS web diary and time diary app successfully collected comparable data to the traditional paper time diary format - read analysis of the pilot and dress rehearsal in Measuring Young People’s Time-Use in the UK Millennium Cohort Study: A Mixed-Mode Time Diary Approach
