The main goal of the Albanian Time Use Survey is to develop nationally representative estimates of how people divide their time of various life activities. The main objectives to be achieved through the time use survey were:
• To measure the amount of time spent by the Albanian population on different activities;
• To identify gender differences in time use patterns with special focus on paid and unpaid work activities;
• To carry out the survey in full accordance with the EU’s guidelines and specifications in order to provide comparable statistics on the use of time;
• To create a documented dataset in an accessible and understandable format for the purpose of being used by researchers, academics, and government users.
