Description

Hi, a bit of the background first: there was a time use module (as far as I am aware stylized questions only) for BHPS. It was calibrated by Kan & Gershuny and can be merged with BHPS 1994-2004 data, so you get ten years of time allocation data for the panel respondents. Strangely, there is no info about any of these variables in Understanding Society variable search tool. But the module can be downloaded from UK Data Archives website, so it is definitely there.
Now, I suspect there might a similar module for Understanding Society - one that was collected to be merged with the panel data. Does anyone know where I might get some information about it or - if it exists - where the data can be obtained from?
Thank you very much for any feedback on that.

Hello,

We don’t have a time use set of questions in Understanding Society and we’ve not carried time-use diaries. While there is no time-use module, there are some individual questions that refer to time use such as:

Questions about housework and domestic chores.

We also ask the usual hours worked and overtime hours for those who are employed.

Hours spent on caring for others:

There are specific questions about hours spent playing computer games and on social media in the youth questionnaire for 10-15 year olds
