CHART: How Women Spend Their Time Vs. How Men Spend Their Time

•, Andy Kiersz
The Bureau of Labor Statistics runs an annual survey of Americans asking how they use their time. The survey results are broken down into a number of different demographic groups.
Women still spend more time doing household activities — a little more than two hours a day, versus about an hour and fifteen minutes for men — and taking care of family members — 40 minutes for women, against 20 minutes for men.
Men spend about an hour and fifteen minutes per day more than women at work and work-related activities, and men have about fifty minutes more daily leisure time than women.
This divide is even more noticeable when one looks at the subcategories of household activities. Women spend almost an hour per day on housework and about forty-five minutes on food preparation and cleanup. Men spend only about seventeen minutes per day on each of these activities.
