2014-15 UK time use survey collects enjoyment data

In April 2014, NatCen launched the fieldwork of the 2014-2015 UK national sample Harmonised European Time Use (HETUS) Survey, funded by the ESRC grant which CTUR secured! We initially put an enjoyment column in a subset of diaries, but as response rates appear better with diaries with the extra column, the remaining months of the survey will include the enjoyment column in all diaries!

CTUR make input to UNECE time use guidelines

CTUR Director Jonathan Gershuny and MTUS manager Kimberly Fisher are among the contributors to the newly released UNECE time use survey and statistics for policy guidelines

CTUR £6 Million Research Grants

The Centre for Time Use Research has won two major research grants. The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded an ‘Advanced Grant’ of €2.5 million which will pay staff salaries and supports research into historical changes in work and leisure, and social stratification and inequality in the distribution of time. The diaries also provide evidence of whether or not the population’s enjoyment of daily activities changes in parallel with, or contrary to, GNP.
