The Time use survey is used to collect data about the structure of time use of Finns. It aims to find out how much time is spent on gainful employment, household work, studies, various leisure pursuits and other activities. Those participating in the survey keep a diary of their time use over a two-day period. Besides the time used for different activities, the survey also studies the daily and weekly rhythms of time use, and the time spent together with other people. The data for the latest Time use survey were collected from 1999 to 2000. The data will be next collected in 2009.
