Have you ever wondered how your daily routine compares to the average American’s?
Now you don’t have to wonder, thanks to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Each year the agency releases its American Time Use Survey that catalogs a mass of data on how Americans keep busy, or don’t keep busy – depending often on age, gender or employment status.
The numbers are really interesting but can be a bit overwhelming. To make all that information easier to swallow, we have put together a visualization showing what different groups of people are doing throughout the day. You can also see at a glance how many people are doing everyday activities such as shopping, eating or sleeping at any given moment (view our visualization now).
