Geocoded space-time diaries for 1561 randomly sampled respondents in Halifax, Canada, provide a base for comparing the space-time autonomy of different sub-populations and role groups. Space-time autonomy (Burns, 1979) reflects the degrees of discretion that individuals have over where they go and what they do with their time. This is assessed indirectly by a set of measures concerning the duration of activities, the proximity of home location to primary activity sites, the territorial extent of daily activities, and transport capability.-AuthorsThe Univ. of Western Ontario, Canada.
