Turin on Time, a comprehensive study on how the citizens of Turin use their time

Following a major research project by ISTAT (the Italian National Institute of Statistics) on how time is used in Italian families, the City of Turin commissioned a more specific study focused on the population of the city and its immediate surroundings. The results are being presented this week.

Thanks to these focused results, Turin will now be the only Italian city with data on how its citizen use their time and can use this information to better understand how they organise their daily lives, and to identify service problems and lack of coordination.

This research can also help make public policies and activites more effective and more responsive to the needs of the citizens, and can aid policy makers in making the right qualitative and quantitative choices on what resources to invest in.
