In 2003, the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics initiated the new American Time Use Survey, a comprehensive national survey providing details of daily living. This annual, ongoing survey will provide information to economists, sociologists, and demographers regarding adult t ime choices. Economists use time use data to study a variety of topics. In this series, authors will present research on shift work, household production and retirement, male nonworkers, inequality, and caregiving.
