Sample description
Country: Basque Country (Spain) 2008-2009
Study title: Encuesta de Presupuestos de Tiempo (Basque Country Time Budget Survey)
Collector: Basque Statistics Office (Eustat)
When conducted: April-June 2009; September-December 2008
Sampling method and study design: The study drew a 3-stage random sample of the Basque Country in Spain, first a proportion of provinces (Eurostat's NUTS3), then a probability sample of households (drawn from a population register). One person aged 18+ in sampled households completed a household questionnaire, and one person aged 18+ was sampled to complete the time diary. The same collected equal numbers of diaries from four groups of days: Mondays-Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Weights rebalance the distribution of the days. Some substitution was made of non-respondents. The diary covers 5 minute time slots, starting at 06:00 and ending at 05:59 on the following day. After the time slot column, the next columns cover first location, then main activity, then secondary activity, then who else was present. Respondents recorded activities in their own words on the day the activities took place. These studies are conducted every 5 years
Sample size: 6,272 respondents
Response rate: 73.5%
Weighting procedures: Weights address selection of households, persons, and balance the distribution of the days of the week
