Exploratory Analysis of Children’s Daily Time-Use and Activity Patterns: Child Development Supplement to U.S. Panel Study of Income Dynamics

This paper examines the weekday and weekend activity participation characteristics of schoolchildren. The research focuses on the overall time use of children in different types of activities as well as on several dimensions characterizing the context of participation in activities. These include the temporal (day of week and participation duration), spatial (location), with-whom (i.e., accompanying individuals), and episode-sequencing dimensions. The data for the analysis are drawn from the 2002 Child Development Supplement to the Panel Study of Income Dynamics.
