The Indian Time Use Survey 2019

The first all-India time use survey was conducted by the National Statistical Office in 2019. It covered 1,38,794 households—60% rural and 40% urban—and 4,47,250 persons above six years of age. This paper examines the concepts, methods, and quality of data used in the TUS 2019, the results of which throw light on the workforce, health and educational status of the population, and other dimensions of life. The status of TUSs in the global South and the challenges faced by the countries therein, as well as how successful
the NSO has been in facing these challenges in India are also discussed.
