Co-ordination and Funding

The Centre for Time Use Research (CTUR) at the University of Oxford maintains this database as an adjunct to the Multinational Time Use Study with additional information from the original American data. The CTUR team originally developed this database while based at the Institute for Social and Economic Research, University of Essex in the UK developed the American Heritage Time Use Study (AHTUS) on commission from Yale University (Program on Non-Market Accounts) for the Glaser Progress Foundation, which funded the creation of this project. The original AHTUS project was one of two related time use and United States national accounts projects commissioned by Yale University. Since 2008, CTUR, with funding from the Economic and Social Research Council, has improved the original files and expanded the surveys included in the AHTUS.
