The New York Times just published a fascinating infographic titled How Different Groups Spend Their Day.
Here’s how they describe it:
“The American Time Use Survey asks thousands of American residents to recall every minute of a day. Here is how people over age 15 spent their time in 2008.”
It actually shows what people did every hour of everyday — sleeping, watching TV, eating, etc. And the numbers are divided by ethnicity, age, education-background and more.
I could easily see having my students first do a similar analysis of their days and then comparing it to this infographic.
