What variables do I need to include in the ATUS-X extract when adding HHTENURE?


I am using ATUS-X to compute average time use in different time use categories. I want to control for home ownership, so I added HHTENURE. But somehting strange happened to my extract, there are hardly any observations. What other variables do I need to include when adding HHTENURE? All my other variables are person level (since I don’t care who in the household answered the questionnaire).



I was unable to replicate your issue. The first thing you should check is if the extract was fully decompressed using appropriate decompression software such as 7-zip. You can read more detailed instructions here. If your problem is not related to decompression, I recommend reconstructing the extract from scratch and downloading the fresh extract.

Hope this helps.
