How people use their time

This is fascinating:

Play with the interactive version here. Change the settings to Men, Women, People with Kids, or Without, etc.

A few observations:

  1. 7:00 AM and 10:30 PM appear to be the most common "wake up"' and "go to sleep" times.
  2. Lunch is the most concentrated meal of the day, generally at 12:00 noon. Dinner is much more spread out, but most commonly occurs right after 6:00 PM. Breakfast is much harder to figure out.
  3. People are getting more sleep than you would think (everyone seems to claim they don't get enough sleep, but in total, we are averaging over 8 hours per night).
  4. People watch a lot of TV and movies.
  5. The amount of "computer" time doesn't seem high enough to me.
