There is a need to define a conceptual framework and classification of activities, which countries, especially those embarking on time-use studies for the first time, can adapt to their own needs and specific contexts. This paper aims to synthesize several existing activity classifications and diary codes and propose a classification of activities based on the System of National Accounts (SNA). Consistency with other existing classification systems and concepts, namely the concept of economic activity which is related to the SNA and the occupational and industrial classifications, International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO) and International Standard Industrial Classification (ISIC), will facilitate development of statistics on unpaid and non-market work. Since the SNA is the basis for national economic statistics, this classification will also help align time-use statistics with more standard forms of economic statistics and increase their versatility for other forms of application, such as for the development of satellite accounts and valuing unpaid work.
