description:
This survey monitors changes in time use, including time-stress and well-being. The two primary objectives of the General Social Survey are: a) To gather data on social trends in order to monitor changes in the living conditions and well-being of Canadians over time; and b) To provide immediate information on specific social policy issues of current or emerging interest. The purpose of this survey is to better understand how Canadians spent their time. Time use estimates can be produced based on information reported in the time use di ary portion of the survey. This diary provides a detailed record of participation in a wide variety of daily activities, as well as the time devoted to them, where these activities took place, and the social r elationships of the respondent. Also, for the first time, the 2010 GSS collected information on simultaneous activities, i.e. those that are performed at the same time as a primary activity. The questionnaire collected additional information on perceptions of time, time spent doing unpaid work, well-being, paid work and education, cultural and sports activities, transportation, and numerous socio economic characteristics.
