“Social time customs,” or time-use (TU) is a concept developed using Walker and Avant’s (1995) concept analysis methodology and encompasses time-use differences possible among socio-cultural groups. Time use, an integration of two concepts: social time and customs (cultures), reflects a group's method of noting time-passage. The purpose of this paper is to present TU differences possible among socio-cultural groups. Time use is a component of a proposed theoretical model linking temporal differences and shift work-related sleep disturbances. Time use is a temporal factor thought to influence shift work-related sleep disturbances and sleepiness and may differ in socio-cultural groups such American Indian/Alaskan Native and White non Hispanic shift workers. Findings of an extensive literature review will be synthesize and presented. Based on that review, social time customs are defined as the shared time-use practices that are evident in a group’s social interactions, values, beliefs, and traits. Time-use practices are communicated through symbols, religion and language, and affect the regulation of daily activities and the passage of time. Time-use traits can differ among ethnic groups and by geographic location. Social time customs encompass several time practices and traits (value placed on past, present and future; pace of life, time awareness, structure, timeliness, and polychronicity). Recent research findings suggest a relationship between subjective time awareness (survey results) and physiological measures (heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature). Time use differences and conflicts possible among socio-cultural groups will be discussed. Additionally, pertinent research findings on time-use practice differences and questions pertaining to future research needs will be offered. AN: MN030333
