The Event

IPUMS Time Use ( offers free, harmonized time diary data from the U.S. and around the world. These data facilitate comparative research and analysis of individuals within family contexts. Time use data are frequently used in demographic research, with a strong emphasis on examining how time use both reflects and reinforces gendered experiences across the life course. These data, however, are underutilized in population health research despite the emphasis on social determinants of health and life course health and well-being. This virtual workshop will focus on using IPUMS Time Use data to investigate work, family, and well-being before and during the Pandemic. Our goals are to describe the time diary data available via IPUMS, to demonstrate how to access the data, and to highlight their utility for exploring work, family, and well-being during the Pandemic.
