- The American Time Use Survey (ATUS) is the nation's first federally administered, continuous survey on time use in the United States. The goal of the survey is to measure how people divide their time among life's activities. In the ATUS, individuals are randomly selected from a subset of households that have completed their eighth and final month of interviews for the Current Population Survey (CPS). ATUS respondents are interviewed only one time about how they spent their time on the previous day, where they were and whom they were with. The survey is sponsored by the Bureau of Labor Statistics and is conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. The data file available for download from the ARDA combines three files from the 2010 ATUS: the Respondent file, the Activity summary file and the Well-Being Module. Variables from the 2010 Well-Being Module have names that begin with the letter 'W.' Note: The Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported that there was an error in the activity selection process for the 2010 Well-Being Module. Due to a programming error in the data collection software, certain activities were less likely than others to be selected for follow-up questions in the WB Module. As of October 2013, the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Census Bureau were exploring ways to mitigate the error; more information on this error could be found at the following link: http://www.bls.gov/tus/wbnotice.htm.
