Abstract: Our daily routine and experiences are measured with respect to time. That is the main reason why the topic of time use is of great significance. Time use methodologies are related to people‘s lifestyle. Therefore, the foremost concern of the time use survey is to have a clearer view of how people spend their time. This dissertation seeks to analyze the time use of pensioners. A comparative study was conducted in division Bahawalpur (district Bahawalpur, district Bahawalnagar and district Rahimyar Khan). The sample was selected using stratified random sampling from the list of pensioners provided by the District Accounts Office of each district. Data was collected through a questionnaire and 24-hour time-use diary to gain a better insight about the pensioners‘ time spent on various activities in a day. Several challenges were also faced while data collection. The study was carried out in three phases. Data for phase III was collected just before COVID-19, so time use diaries were refilled by pensioners of phase III during COVID-19 to examine the impact of the pandemic on retirees‘ time use. The analysis was performed in R programming and SPSS. Various statistical techniques were applied to obtain the results. The finding of the study shows no major difference in the time spent on activities by pensioners of three districts. However, male and female pensioners spent a different amount of time on different activities. The analysis of the research also shows a difference between the time spent on different activities before and during the pandemic.
