Average hours that men and women worked in 2008
June 25, 2009
On the days that they worked in 2008, employed men worked about 0.9 hour (52 minutes) more than employed women.
This difference partly reflects women's greater likelihood of working part time. However, even among full-time workers (those usually working 35 hours or more per week), men worked longer than women—8.3 versus 7.7 hours.
