2015 Time Use Survey technical note: CS89-658/2017E-PDF

“The 2015 Time Use Survey (TUS) collects important information on paid work as well as nonmarket activities (unpaid work) such as childcare, household chores or maintenance, and volunteering. In addition, it collects data on sleep, commuting, time spent studying or doing homework and participation in leisure activities. The TUS disseminates estimates of the average time Canadians spend per day on various activities, and provides an indication of how these activities may contribute to their feelings of well-being and stress. Generally, data are available nationally and, for some variables, for the following regions: Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario, Prairies and British Columbia. This technical note provides information on the quality of the data from the 2015 Time Use Survey and the weighting and validation strategies used by Statistics Canada in order to assure data quality. This paper also provides comparisons of the 2015 TUS response rate to response rates obtained in other cycles of the General Social Survey and in international time use surveys"--Introd., p. 4.
