Originally scheduled for 3/1 - rescheduled to 3/29/19.  Note time of workshop will be 11:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Our workshop goal is to promote awareness of and expertise in the IPUMS Time Use data archive: the American Time Use Survey (ATUS-X), the American Heritage Time Use Study (AHTUS-X), and the Multinational Time Use Study (MTUS-X). This archive makes large U.S. and international databases with detailed data on time use more easily accessible to researchers. By combining data over time and across countries and enriching information available across household members, this project facilitates research on how time use influences the health of families and individuals, how household health behaviors respond to changing conditions, and how health and well-being differ across cultural and policy settings.

We have the following learning objectives:

· Become familiar with the breadth and depth of data available through IPUMS Time Use

· Learn how to assess appropriateness of ATUS, AHTUS, and MTUS data for specific research topics.

· Understand how to navigate the IPUMS Time Use web-based extract system.

· Develop skill to create custom extracts that include user-defined time use variables.

 Liana Sayer (Sociology/MPRC) and Sandy Hofferth (MPRC) will be the instructors.
