Is it possible to select detailed time use activities from a list to download instead of building and naming sep?


#1

For example, if I want to see the time spent participating for each of the 20 or more sports activities is there a way just to click on each to select to download or do I have to build individual new time use variables to get this data. It seems like a real pain to have to build variables since the data should be there already.

Most time use variables are user-defined combinations of given activities recorded via diaries by the BLS. IPUMS Time Use does have some pre-made TUVs here, here, and here. Outside of these variables, you’ll need to create your own variables for time spent during specific activities.
