Abstract: Data is included for 2,001 Americans between 19 and 65 years of age living in households which had at least one adult person employed in a non-farm occupation. Some 776 respondents were from Jackson, Michigan, while the remainder were from a national sample of individuals living in cities with a population between 30,000 and 280,000. The 589 variables are of two general types. One group concerns socio-demographic characteristics of respondents and household, the other set deals with time use. The time use data were obtained by having respondents keep a complete diary of their activities for a single 24-hour period between November 15 and December 15, 1965, or March 7 and April 29, 1966. The other data were gathered from an interview taken on the day after the diary was completed. Both primary and secondary time use is recorded along with where and with whom the activity took place. These data were gathered as part of a multinational time budget project. The principal investigators have also prepared a dataset combining this dataset with a similar one. It is known as American's Use of Time, 1965-1966, and Time Use in Economic and Social Accounts, 1975-1976: Merged Data (ICPSR 7796).
