Time use and parenting

I came across two great links showing data on time use and parenting.

First, Nathan Yau (of flowingdata.com) compared his time use, activity space, and daily activity patterns pre- and post-baby. The results are striking.

Second, Wendy Wang crunched time use numbers for moms and dads, and working moms compared with stay-at-home moms, to compare activity patterns during the week with those on weekends. Some highlights:
  • Dads, on average, do an hour more housework on weekends than during the week
  • Working moms use the weekends to catch up on housework
  • Working moms have less weekend leisure time than stay-at-home moms or dads

  1. Interesting how much higher "leisure" is for stay at home moms every day of the week.


your insights?
