How Different Groups Spend Their Day

How Different Groups Spend Their Day is an infographic by the New York Times. According to the Gray Lady: "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.

According to Jen, who sent this in:
"This is a prime example of an interesting reseach question, as well as a lesson on graphic design. I don't dispute the results, or the design, just the color choice.

Honestly, the colors chosen represent what I imagine to be the inside of a septic tank, mixed with a barren dessert, and then a dark blue. Still, if you can get past the lack of catchy colors, it's worth looking at."


I loved clicking around. Good find.
PS: I was disappointed to find that "Not in lab..." was not actually about the 5% of time scientists are sleeping at home.
