Is it possible to extract all meeting data from Outlook to quantify time use?

I'm working on quantifying time use and my dataset is based on an Outlook calendar populated with meetings, etc.
Is there an easy way to extract all meetings from Outlook in one go (e.g. pull types of meetings based on type into an Excel workbook)? The end goal is to see how much time per week/month is being spent on each item, and then figuring out how best to shift and re-prioritize based on what I learn.
Right now, the data-pulling is tedious (i.e. I am going through Outlook week by week and manually entering piecemeal meetings into Excel), and am hopeful about the possibility of some trick to pull data from Outlook without all of the "touch". Does this exist?
Thanks so much for any help, MeFi!
