[S] - Multipurpose survey on households: time use
Description The Time Use Survey falls within the System of Multipurpose Surveys on households. The main peculiarity of this survey is that by filling in a daily diary it’s possible to learn about the way in which each respondent allocates 24 hours (divided into 10 minute intervals) between the various daily activities, travel, places visited and people with which spends time. This survey is considered strategic for the knowledge of the organization of the lifetimes of the population in terms of gender, as it allows the study of gender roles in society and in the household. For this reason Italian lawmakers even decided to include an article in the Law n. 53 of 2000, which states: “The National Institute of Statistics (Istat) is to ensure, every five year, an informative flow on the population’s organization of the life times by means of the Time Use Survey, desegregating the information by gender and age”.
