Battle of the Sexes

At Work

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.
