The ATUS is a federally administered annual survey sponsored by the Bureau of Labor Statistics and conducted by the US Census Bureau. The survey includes a nationally representative sample of US residents, aged 15 years and over, who are neither residents of nursing homes or prisons nor in active military duty. The sample frame for the ATUS is provided by the Current Population Survey (CPS), a continuous survey of representative sample households. All members of an eligible household have equal probability of being selected into an ATUS household if they meet the eligibility criteria. To ensure adequate representation, the ATUS oversamples eligible households with Hispanics and non-Hispanic Black people, households with children, and weekend data collection. The primary objective of the ATUS is to measure how US residents spend their time on a typical day. The ATUS therefore captures a 24 h time activity diary recall, to 1 min resolution, of eligible respondents starting at 4 a.m. the previous day and ending at 4 a.m. on the interview day via a computer-assisted telephone interview lasting between 15 and 20 min per respondent [16]. The designated person who consents to participate is given USD 40 incentive for their time.
