How do Americans spend their time?

The First Visualization

The following picture shows how Americans spend their time in different fields. You can find whole data here. There are 12 donut cahrts, each with a bar chart at the center. Each donut chart represents an activity, and the deep purple part denotes the average amount of hours Americans spend in this activity (regardless gender), with accurate number at the upper right corner. The bar chart shows the differnce of men and women spend their time in this activity. The horizontal direction represents the age scale from 15 to 75, the vertical direction represents the absoulte value of |(men's average time - women's average time)|, the length is in the same scale of donut chart. Pink bar charts represent the amount of time women spend more than men while blue represents the opposite.

means the time that men spend more than women means the time that women spend more than women the X axis in each bar chart is people's age range from 15 to 75

From the above graph we can see that personal care activities take most time in Americans daily life, and women from 15 to 75 all spend more time than men on it. Men spend more time in leisure and sports than women for all age. It's obvious in the third donut chart that there is a sharp increment of men's time spending on working and related activities after age 25 and it keeps stable to age 45. Meanwhile, we can tell from the forth chart that women spend much more time on Household activities after age 25. These two graphs indicate that when people grow up, men tend to take more work and women take more household.

The Second Visualization

The graph shows what activities people do in each of the 24 hours in a day. We believe it may be insteresting and useful for advertisers and social apps to tailor their advertisements based on people's schedules. You can find whole data here.

The Third Visualization

The following visualization shows how Americans spent their time from 2011 to 2015, the differences between weekdays and weekends, as well as the differences between men and women. It's surprising that with the rise of high-tech products from 2011 and 2015, people don't change the amount of time spent in each activity a lot. You can find whole data here.
