You Busy? Part II


Very simplified and rounded to full hour, here's how an average American age 18+ spends his/her 24 daily hours. (see the study in previous post for breakdowns by gender, employment, etc.)

Sleep: 8 hour
Personal Care: 1
Eating and Drinking: 1
Housework: 1
Food Prep: 1
Purchasing goods and services: 1
Caring for kids:2
Employment: 4
Television: 2
Socializing: 1
Other leisure & sport: 1
Not noted here: 1

Very interestingly email + phone + mail were only listed as 6 minutes daily in this 2004 study. TV time is probably getting replaced by computer time which hopefully will be separated out in the future studies.
