Are spouse time diaries available for the 1975 AHTUS sample?


All of the values of the variable “SPOUSE” appear to be missing, even in the 1975 sample. Are the spouse time diaries available?


The spouse diaries are currently not available on IPUMS Time Use. This explains the “missing” information in the SPOUSE variable. I just verified with the IPUMS Time Use team that the goal is to have the spouse files available before the end of the year.
