    • Jan – If only it were that easy to add hours to the day!

      We created a few charts with this data, but only posted the one. You may find this multi-chart interesting: http://www.pqsystems.com/eline/2015/04/data_in_everyday_life2_large.png

      Here, we’re looking at the same data, but including responses that indicate no participation in an activity as a count of zero hours.
      Time spent per activity now adds up to 24 hours, and represents an “average day.”

      A downside to this view of the data is that the average for categories such as “work-related activities” becomes skewed by the large number of respondents who don’t participate (retired, unemployed, etc).

      Thanks for reading!
