New time use survey conducted this year
The time use survey will be taken for the third time in 2012/13, following the surveys of 1991/92 and 2001/02. It covers the time use of households belonging to various population groups in most different life circumstances. The focus is on issues such as the distribution of time among job, household, family and personal activities or on how children and juveniles spend their time. In what form is childcare provided, which learning opportunities and cultural facilities are used? As a new aspect, the survey covers respondents’ subjective perception of time by asking questions about time-related stress, time conflicts and respondents’ wishes with regard to time. Time remains an up-to-date topic. The results of the 2001/02 survey still meet with great interest in politics, business, on the part of the scientific community and interested citizens.
