SEMINAR on Time Use SurveysCO-ORGANISED BY DG-EMPL AND EUROSTATSession C: Education and common policy issuesElena G. F. StancanelliCNRS, GREDEG, Nice and OFCE, Sciences-Po, ParisMain issues
  • Innovative issues concerning the use of time use data
  • Children diary
  • Three time use surveys: one for ethnic people
  • Life cycle issues
  • Harmonized time use surveys
  • Some points on the Finish study
  • Can we ask children to fill in time diaries? What about alternative surveys based on interviews?
  • What is the impact of changing school rules and methods on time spent doing homework?
  • Are policy makers interested in doing something to limit the time children spend doing computer games and watching television?
  • And what about children been alone at home quite some time while not talking to other family people when they are all there?
  • What will be the « unintended » consequences of these habits for future society?? Presumably the findings can be generalized to other societies.
  • This may link to the Dutch study where it is found that « work » time increases and leisure time decreases for « adults », but do they also have less time for children?
  • What are the statistics presented? Average or median time?
  • Remarks on the Dutch study
  • It is interesting to compare the 3 surveys but I agree that it is also overdoing it.
  • What are the response rates, as in the past, I thought, this was 15% ?
  • Definition-wise: using the term « care » can be confusing as it covers here « household tasks » and not care for people.
  • And what about « paid and umpaid work » time rather than « obligatory » time?
  • Add more quantitative information. Leisure time has gone down by how much, on average? Could test whether the change in means is statistically significant.
  • Policy wise, the question of multiple tasks, and stress that could end up making people sick is also relevant.
  • Why drawing the line at at least 12 hours of either paid or unpaid work per week for « multitask »? Is this the Dutch convention of the 12 hours per week small jobs for « housewives » or something like that?
  • To measure « stress », do you also have info on « seconday activities », ie doing at least two things at the same time, like cooking & watching the children?
