Guidelines for Harmonizing Time-Use Surveys

Published: December 2013

The objectives of these Guidelines are to (a) help statisticians and policymakers understand the importance of time-use surveys, (b) provide guidance in the design and implementation of  time-use surveys, and (c) improve the international comparability of their results. The  Guidelines include recommendations of preferred or best practice, based on the experience of member countries of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe and other developed countries participating in the work of CES. 

While the Guidelines mainly target national statistical authorities that carry out time-use surveys, they also provide useful information for policymakers, researchers and other users of time-use data.
