Description: The data collected in the American Time Use Survey (ATUS) helps researchers determine how the population in the United States uses its time participating in such activities as paid work, child care, housework, volunteering, socializing, and traveling.

To ensure the widest distribution, BLS will release annual and quarterly data to the public in the form of data tables. Microdata sets containing greater detail than the published tables will also be available, as will special analysis by BLS and outside analysis in the Monthly Labor Review (published by BLS) and other publications.

I. Background

    Employment and Training Administration regulations at 20 CFR 651,

Department of Labor established recordkeeping requirements to allow for 
the efficient and effective monitoring of State Workforce Agencies' 
(SWAs) regulatory compliance. The ETA Form 5148, Services to Migrant 
and Seasonal Farm Workers Report, is used to collect data which are 
primarily used to
