Time Use Pilot Survey 2012
 
     
  Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) has conducted the Time Use Pilot Survey 2012 successfully.
Though many countries of the world have conducted Time Use Survey in several times but
Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) has taken initiative for the first time.

Time Use Pilot Survey 2012 used two data collection instruments, (1) A Household Questionnaire
(2) A Time Diary applicable for household members aged 15 years and above. Data were collected
Through (i) interview for Household Questionnaire (ii) Self Administered Time Diary for the
Education respondents and (iii) Face to face interview for the uneducated respondents.

Time use statistics provide information on type of activities which individuals usually perform and
How much time they spend for those activities. As it is told earlier that the survey is conducted first
Time in Bangladesh, therefore, it may have got some limitations particularly in adopting the
International Classifications.
