American Time Use Survey (ATUS) in jeopardy

The President’s proposed FY 2009 budget eliminates funding for the American Time Use Survey (ATUS) at the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Eliminating the ATUS would result in the loss of informative data on the full range of non-market activities Americans conduct. BLS needs $6.0 million in the FY 2009 budget to fully fund the ATUS and its other key surveys.
