This is a follow-up to last week’s post on the average American work day . Here are two charts on leisure and sports activities from the American Time Use Survey, released by the U.S. Department of Labor – Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The first chart shows the distribution of leisure time on an average day for all Americans age 15 and over. The data include all days of the week and are annual averages for 2005.
The second chart shows the average hours spent per day in leisure and sports activities, by youngest and oldest populations. The data include all days of the week and are annual averages for 2005.
Did you notice that watching TV is the biggest time chunk in both graphs and for all ages?
