It is not intended to replace a statistics course but to provide you with a handy guide to the definition of some important terms in the statistical tools used by economists."

Activity Classification for the Time Use Survey

"The Activity Classification for the Time Use Survey (ACTUS) was developed to assist in the study of time use in the New Zealand context. This classification was designed to meet the requirements of the Statistics New Zealand Time Use Survey 2009/10. ACTUS is based on the activity classification used for the Statistics New Zealand Time Use Survey 1998/99. Changes to this classification have been made to reflect the needs of users and to improve international comparability with time use surveys in Australia, Canada, the United States of America, and the United Kingdom.

Activity Coding List for Harmonised European Time Use Surveys

"The Harmonised European Time Use (HETUS) activity coding list is based on international practices and previous classifications of daily activities used in Europe. The coding system and index were tested and revised on the basis of time use pilot surveys in 18 countries. The final system was completed in 2000 and revised in 2008. The European activity coding list allows several groupings of activities depending on the purpose of the analysis."

International Classification of Activities for Time-Use Statistics

"The classification seeks to provide the basis on which data from time-use surveys would be coded and presented in categories that would be meaningful in the assessment of national labour inputs into production of all goods and all types of services; in the compilation of household satellite accounts; and in examining trends in the broad uses of time."
