This one day-course is designed for researchers that are interested in time-use research. Participants will be introduced to the state of art in time-use research and the analytical opportunities provided by existing time-use resources in the United Kingdom. The course will also cover topics surrounding time-use data collection, including diary design as well as advantages and disadvantages of different modes of time-diary data collection, including web and app technologies. The course will also cover the main statistical modelling techniques that can be applied to time-use data. The course is suitable for researchers interested in collecting time-use data as well as those interested in secondary analyses of large-scale time-use surveys.

A high level of mathematical ability is not required, but participants should ideally have undertaken an introductory statistics and data analysis course (e.g. a semester long module as part of a Masters-level degree)

This is not a practical workshop and it does not provide training in the use of data analysis software. It will however provide a strong foundation for future engagement at practical workshops that are designed to provide hands-on training in time-use data analysis.

Course Timings: 10:00 - 16:00


The fee per teaching day is: • £30 per day for students registered at UK/EU University. • £60 per day for staff at UK/EU academic institutions, UK/EU Research Councils researchers, UK/EU public sector staff and staff at UK/EU registered charity organisations and recognised UK/EU research institutions. • £100 per day for all other participants In the event of cancellation by the delegate a full refund of the course fee is available up to two weeks prior to the course.

If it is no longer possible to run a course due to circumstances beyond its control, NCRM reserves the right to cancel the course at its sole discretion at any time prior to the event. In this event every effort will be made to reschedule the course. If this is not possible or the new date is inconvenient a full refund of the course fee will be given.
