According to the survey, employed persons worked an average of 7.6 hours per day over the course of an entire week (weekends included). Men worked about three-quarters of an hour more than employed women, a difference that is likely influenced by the greater likelihood that women work on a part-time basis.
However, amongst full-time workers men only worked slightly longer than women – an average of 8.2 hours versus 7.8 hours for women.
Working from home: Of the entire American workforce, hours worked at home averaged 2.8 hours per day, while hours worked at a workplace averaged 7.9 hours per day. Men and women were equally likely to do some or all of their work at home.
