Time Use Training Materials
The MTUS-X is a collaborative project between the Maryland Population Research Center, the Centre for Time Use Research (CTUR) at University College London and the Minnesota Population Center (MPC). The dataset is administered by the CTUR while IPUMS is the responsible for the dissemination system. The MTUS-X is a tool designed to make it easy for researchers to create time use variables and extract customized MTUS data files that are ready for analysis.
The materials contained on this page were developed over the course of multiple years and were all created and presented at IPUMS Time Use Workshops.
These training exercises contain practical and hands-on exercises meant to familarize researchers and students who are new to time diary data and/or IPUMS Time Use.
