Daily diaries are a widely used measurement tool in studies on the use of social time. However, while their high level of accuracy is supported by a lot of research, scholars often voice doubts regarding the validity of the estimates obtained if the characteristic rhythm of the events in question is not completed within a 24-h period. This study attempts to explain why, although these statistics are not wrong, they need to be understood correctly before proceeding with research based on them. To overcome the problem we will propose a solution for new surveys where use of diaries of this type is scheduled. Although this solution is not without limitations, they are much less restrictive than those imposed by traditional daily diaries.
