NOTE The 2020 ATUS was greatly affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Data collection was suspended in 2020 from mid-March to mid-May for the safety of ATUS staff. Annual 2020 estimates cannot be produced due to the 2-month suspension in data collection, and thus ATUS tables were not updated with 2020 data. For more information, please see the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on the 2020 ATUS page.
Note: Historical estimates (from 2003 to the most recent year) for tables A-1 and A-2 are available through the ATUS Database.
Note: Tables A-6 and A-7 are updated and expanded versions of the tables appearing in the May 8, 2008 news release on Married Parents' Use of Time. To access the 2003-06 versions of these tables, see the news release.
Additional tables are available in ATUS news releases.
Unpublished tables of time-use estimates by age, ethnicity, employment status, educational attainment, marital status, presence and age of household children, and other categories are available upon request by e-mailing the ATUS staff.
