Several aspects of time-budget methodology that are relevant to research on the activities of daily living by the aged are described. Most studies on the well-being of the elderly utilize data based on the number of activities, but the duration of the activities are not considered. This paper provides an overview of some of the salient research on time use studies and the elderly.
