neat-o graph shows how americans spend their day

August 10th, 2009 · No Comments


The top-notch Web design team at the New York Times has put together a very neat interactive graph highlighting the ways different groups of Americans spend their day. Here are some interesting facts, with the usual caveat about correlation not equaling causation and all that:

  • People with two children are more likely to be actively looking for work than those with no kids — and more likely to be working.
  • People with higher education levels watch less TV.
  • More people are eating at 12:10 p.m. than at any other time during the day.
  • 76 per cent of Americans with no jobs are awake by 9:00 a.m. anyway.
  • Unemployed people are as likely to be sleeping at 3:00 p.m. as those with jobs.
  • White people have the most regimented meal times.
