WHERE reports the location where the activity was performed. WHERE is coded based on the respondent's report of where the activity took place as well as the location implicit in the activity codes. In contrast to ELOC, WHERE contains greater detail about the mode of transportation. Users may also consult MTRAV for information about travel apart from location.

WHERE is only available if you select a hierarchical extract. If you request a hierarchical extract and plan to construct time use variables in your statistics package, this variable may be useful to you.
