The American Time Use Survey asks questions about how people spend their time. People use their time differently depending on their age and circumstances. This survey asks a wide variety of people how they use their time: students, retirees, workers, parents, men, and women. Your participation in this survey ensures we provide accurate data on the time use and quality of life of all people age 15 and over living in America. You are an important part of this survey.
