MetadataShow full item record
This research paper examines the weekday and weekend activity participation characteristics of school-going children. Specifically, 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 our analysis is drawn from the 2002 Child Development Supplement to the Panel Study of Income Dynamics.
