About the Presentation

This 90 minute workshop provides an introduction to time use research, describes the specific topics for which it is most appropriate, and provides hands-on examples in two areas: 1) gender, racial/ethnic, nativity, and social class differences in housework and care work; and 2) gender, racial/ethnic, nativity, and social class differences in leisure.  Both can be linked to health.  The focus is on using the ATUS-X web extract system to pull samples and variables and create data sets in SAS, STATA, and SPSS.  This will be helpful for beginning users and for intermediate users who want guidance on how to approach more advanced topics.  Bring your questions!
