American Time Use Survey Questionnaires
The ATUS questionnaire provides the data user with question universes,
question wording, response choices, and skip patterns in a readable paper format.
The questionnaire includes most, but not all, questions asked in the survey, their descriptions, and
their associated question variables. These question variables should not be confused with the variable
names provided in the ATUS data dictionaries.
