How can I extract all subcategories in detail?

I want a detailed extract with each activity as an individual variable - I’m trying to match the BLS survey pdf (eg. structure which shows a full detail/heirarchy of time use activities.
eg. I want to see the time for ‘General or other personal care’ separate from ‘Imputed personal or household care’, and separate from ‘Sleep’ etc. for all the time use categories. I don’t want to create 93 individual variables, esp when I’m specifically not aggreagating into defined variables, but I just want to full detailed data.

Or is there a full download file?

Thank you,

You can add all the BLS categories of time use by checking all the variables in the group on this page.

That’s great! That totally worked, and/but is there an equivalent page/navigation to do the same for the AHTUS sub-categories?

Thank you!

Unfortunately IPUMS AHTUS doesn’t currently have all the detailed time use variables pre-made for downloading. You’ll need to create the individual time use variables yourself through this page.
