    Jonathan Gershuny, in International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences (Second Edition), Methodological Alternatives. There are four distinct approaches to the measurement of time use in a population: ‘stylized estimates’ as part of questionnaire enquiries, observational methods, using administrative records, and diary methods. The paper discusses the importance of broadening the scope of time-use research to capture the quantity and quality of time, to achieve richer insights into gendered time-use patterns and trends. The paper suggests a path forward that combines mainstream time-use data collection methods with promising methodological innovations from other.

    The purpose of the workshop, as noted earlier, was to draw on the most current understanding of methodological advances to improve the measurement of physical and cognitive disabilities in population surveys of older adults, focusing on disability measures that are suitable for population surveys and that are most relevant for monitoring of trends and policy oriented research and evaluation. Biophysical Measurement in Experimental Social Science Research is an ideal primer for the experimental social scientist wishing to update their knowledge and skillset in the area of laboratory-based biophysical measurement. Many behavioral laboratories across the globe have acquired increasingly sophisticated biophysical measurement equipment, sometimes for particular research .

    Economists have long been interested in the analysis of time use decision making. Studies of this nature have been limited until recently by a lack of quality time use data. In , after years of study and preparation, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics initiated the annual American Time Use Survey (ATUS).

Time-Use Measurement and Research is a summary of a workshop convened to consider data and methodological issues in measuring time use. This report discusses why time-use data are needed, highlighting many of policy and behavioral applications of time-use data.

Time-use research is a developing field of study.

The question concerns how time is allocated across a number of activities (such as time spent at home, at work, shopping, etc.).

Time use changes with technology, as the television or the Internet created new opportunities to use time in different ways. Surely everyone wants to know the source of happiness, and indeed, economists and social scientists are increasingly interested in the study and effects of subjective well-being.
