Abstract

In this work we analyze the time that members of the Spanish Armed Forces (Armed Forces) dedicate to their daily activities, comparing it with that of workers from other economic sectors. To do this, we used the Spanish Time Use Survey corresponding to the periods 2002-2003 and 2009-2010, in its version included in the Multinational Time Use Study. We find that there are differences in the time that the members of the armed forces They dedicate to paid work, commuting to and from work and household chores, compared to other workers, although these differences in the uses of time vary according to the gender of the person. Furthermore, in our analysis we include a series of climatological variables obtained from the Spanish Meteorological Agency (AEMET), seeking to know the possible influence of these variables in the different uses of time. We observe that weather conditions have a significant effect on paid work activities, commuting to and from work, housework and leisure, with rain and wind being the most relevant factors. The analysis presented in this work can be used to identify what factors affect the distribution of the available time of the members of the Armed Forces, with the weather showing as a relevant factor, which can be useful for conducting welfare analysis.
