Where should a new ATUS-X user start?

The documentation is a natural starting place for new ATUS-X users. We have a page dedicated to helping new users navigate our site.

The [Variables page is the primary tool for exploring the contents of ATUS-X. On the variables page, clicking on a variable name brings up its documentation. The documentation contains a description of the variable as well as the codes, labels, and frequencies for all categorical variables and availability of the variable across samples. This information can suggest the types of research possible with a given sample.

New users may also familiarize themselves with pre-created time use variables and the options ATUS-X offers for creating time use variables through the data extract builder.

If you are already registered to use ATUS-X, you can click on create an extract and use the data access system.
