About the Workshop

This 90 minute workshop provides a brief overview of the IPUMS Time Use archive, and provides hands-on examples in using IPUMS Time Use data to explore time spent alone and time spent with others. Spending more time alone is associated with negative health outcomes and lower levels of social capital. Our goal for this workshop is to promote awareness of and expertise using IPUMS Time Use data, with the following specific objectives:

• Overview of IPUMS Time Use.
• Overview of available data.
• Guided tour of IPUMS Time Use.
• Hands-on analysis of IPUMS Time Use data.
