We aim to advance the collection and application of rigorously collected population-representative samples of time use diary data, and to conduct research into a wide range of issues in the human and social sciences using this data.
CTUR has been an ESRC research centre since 2014. Our ESRC research centre designation (until 2024) involves a range of activities including:
- collecting new UK national time diary studies
- developing and piloting advanced diary instruments using motion sensors
- body cameras GPS alongside conventional paper and internet based diaries and apps, as well as
- maintaining and extending the Multinational Time Use Study.
