Configuration of the American Time Use Survey (ATUS) database from 2015 to 2017.

1 Includes holidays that fell on weekdays. Designated sample size was calculated from ATUS case file data and excluded noneligible participants. The ATUS response rate was calculated using the American Association for Public Opinion Research’s (AAPOR’s) formula as follows: Response rate = C/(C + R + NC + O + UE); where C = Completes (complete or sufficient partial interview), R = Refusals, NC = Noncontact (uncompleted callbacks; never contacted), O = Other (respondent absent, ill, or hospitalised; language barrier, etc.), and UE = Unknown eligibility (phone number incorrect for household, unconfirmed number, etc.).
