Hey... Whacha Doin?

The BLS released its annual "whacha doin?" survey (i.e. time spent in primary activities for the civilian population survey). The below details what the average person is up to on an average day by age group.




The average member of the U.S. population (drumroll please):

  • Works 3.5 hours...
  • Sleeps 8.5 hours [~90% of the 'personal care" time]...
  • Shops 3/4 hour...
  • "Leisures" 5 1/4 hours...
Per day!

Must be nice...
