Time Use

The Time Use domain looks at the use of time, how people experience time, what controls its use and how it affects well-being. In this domain, indicators report on time spent getting around (transportation), time spent working for pay, and overall satisfaction with life in general. The CIW data is supplemented with data from the Canadian Community Health Survey, the National Household Survey, the 2016 Census.
