Summary

This paper proposes an innovative statistical matching method to combine
the advantages of large national surveys and time diary data. We use
data from two UK datasets that share stylised time-use information,
crucial for the matching process. In particular, time-diary information
of an individual from the Home On-line Study, our donor data set, is
imputed to a similar individual from the British Household Panel Survey,
our recipient dataset. Propensity score methods are used in conjunction
with Mahalanobis matching to increase matching quality.
