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 investigate issues in areas including social life, work-life balance, family, gender, and economics.
The centre is also home to the Multinational Time Use Study (MTUS) which brings together more than a million diary days from over 70 randomly sampled national-scale surveys, into a single standardised format. MTUS allows researchers to analyse time spent by different sorts of people in various sorts of work and leisure activities, over the last 55 years and across 30 countries.
CTUR has published a new working paper by Professor Jonathan Gershuny titled New Working paper: Gender Symmetry, Gender Convergence and Historical Work-time Invariance in 24 countries.
