Prior work by BLS on questionnaire development and pre-testing focused primarily on developing questions to measure time spent on primary activities. This project will pretest a module of questions involving eating as a secondary activity. This information, along with height and weight, will allow for research on time use patterns as they relate to obesity risk. Questions on food assistance participation will also be tested. These questions when included in the ATUS will allow for research on time use patterns of participants and non-participants.
