    New Data.

    Updated Data.

    • US data from 2003-2012 have been replaced with updated versions. The 2006-2008 data now have fewer activity records. This is because we have discontinued the creation of new activity records based on secondary eating and drinking, which was only available in these years of data. The 2006-2008 data now contain the same number of activity records as the original source data. Other substantial diary-level changes include differences in ELOC, INOUT, MTRAV, and SEC. RELREFP and SINGPAR were corrected and have several differences. We also made several other corrections that affected several variables, but relatively few cases. All previous versions of the data are available for download, though not through the data extract system. To download the previously available versions of this data, please visit the CTUR MTUS in ATUS page.

    New Data.

    Added Variables.

    Edited Variables.

    • Canada 2010: The variable REGION_CA's code structure has been edited. This was done to accommodate additional samples in the variable.
    • Hungary 2009: The variable INCORIG's code structure for has been edited. INCORIG previously reported income levels in a 1-5 code structure for the Hungary 2009 sample, but now reports income levels in a 1-10 code structure.
    • Edits made to ALONE_ALT: We have changed the coding structure of ALONE_ALT to better reflect the the presence or absence of other persons during activity. ALONE_ALT is now created using the variable ALONE as the baseline, and ALONE_ALT is updated if responses for OAD, SPPART or CHILD contradict the ALONE response. This changes affects the following samples: Bulgaria 2001, Canada 2010, France 1998, France 2009, Hungary 1999, Hungary 2009, Israel 1991, Italy 2002, Spain 2002, UK 1983, UK 1987, UK 2000, UK2000, UK2005, and US samples 1965, 1975 and 1998 through 2012. Researchers who have used these variables or who have made time use variables indicating time spent alone may contact us for additional information.
    • Spain 2009: We have identified and fixed an error in OAD and ALONE for Spain 2009. Researchers who have used these variables or who have made time use variables indicating time spent alone or with an other adult may contact us for additional information.

    Edited Variables.

    • Bulgaria 2001: Errors in the variable AGEKID have been corrected.
    • Hungary 2009: Errors in the variables CHILD, ALONE_ALT and ALONE have been corrected. In CHILD, a subset of codes that were previously coded as '00 - No' have now been assigned codes of '-8 - Missing'. Due to changes in CHILD, the variable ALONE_ALT has also been corrected. For ALONE, all codes that were previously coded "Missing" have now been coded '00 - No'.

    Edited Variables.

    • Finland 2009: A coding error in the variable ISCO1 has been corrected.

    Added Variables.

    • The variable ALONE_ALT is now available for United Kingdom 2014 and Finland 2009.

November 28, 2018

    New Data.

    • New sample has been added: Finland 2009.

    Edited Variables.

    • Errors in the variable ELOC have been corrected for the following samples: Israel 1991, Bulgaria 2001, Hungary 2009 and United Kingdom 2014.
    • Errors in the location filter variable (used to create Time Use Variables) have been corrected for the following samples: Israel 1991, Bulgaria 2001, and Hungary 2009. Note that time use variables with this filter that were created prior to and following the correction may be different.

October 18, 2018

    Added Variables.

    • United Kingdom 2014: The variable RELREFP is now available.

    New Data.

    • New sample has been added: United Kingdom 2014.

    Added Variables.

    Edited Variables.

    • Bulgaria 2001: An error in IDENT has been fixed. IDENT was not previously properly indexing multiple diaries.
    • Israel 1991: The variable BTHPL code structure has been edited. This was done to accommodate additional samples in the variable.

    New Data.

    • New samples have been added: Hungary 2009, Israel 1991 and Bulgaria 2001.

    Added Variables.

    • Israel 1991: The variables YRIMM, BTHPL and PABTHPL have been added. These variables are only available for the Israel 1991 sample.

    Edited Variables.

    • We corrected values 45-50 in MAIN in the United States 2010 file.

October 13, 2016

    Edited Variables.

    • We corrected COHAB for France 1998. 5361 cases changed from 0 "Not married" to -7 "Not in couple".

October 11, 2016

    Added Variables.

    • HHTYPE has been added for all samples.

    New Data.

    • Austria 1992, France 1985, France 1998, Finland 1979, and Canada 2010 are now available.

    Edited Variables.

    • The format for CLOCKST has been improved so that digits after the decimal appear. Additionally, several values have changed in files from the Netherlands (all years) and from the United Kingdom in 1995 (all values are one minute lower except for the first record in the United Kingdom). In the United Kingdom 1987 file, duplicated values have been fixed so that all CLOCKST values are unique within a diary.
    • START values in United Kingdom 1983 and 1995 were one minute higher than they should have been; they have been corrected with this release. Users should note that this may result in time use variables being different by one minute per respondent.
    • A few values for TIME have been corrected in USA 1975 and for END in United Kingdom 1974.
    • For SAMPLE, United Kingdom values have changed from GB to UK.
    • In Spain 2009, errors have been fixed in 10 or fewer cases in each of AGEKID2, PARNTID1, PARNTID2, RELREFP, and SINGPAR.

    TUV Creation.

    • The system now returns values for the uber category "Travelling" in the location filter of the time use variable creation process. Previously, it would only return time for the travel sub-categories.
    • We have added the ability for users to select "All" categories of secondary activities in the secondary activity filter of the time use variable creation process. Previously, only one type of secondary activity could be selected at a time.
