The American Time Use Survey shows a number of disparities between how women and men with children and full-time jobs spend their time on an average day. Women devote a combined three hours and 18 minutes to household activities and care for others; men spend an hour less, at 2 hours and 18 minutes. On the other hand, men work 48 minutes a day longer than women—but also enjoy an extra 48 minutes spent in leisure and sports activities. While people work more hours on weekdays, the average person puts in 5.6 hours a day on weekends and holidays, too.
