Americans planning to skip work after the Game of Thrones finale in the U.S. 2019

This statistic shows the number of adults planning to skip or show up late to work or work remotely the day after the Game of Thrones finale in the United States in May 2019. The findings reveal that 10.7 million adults plan to skip work on Monday 20th May, 2019 after having watched the finale of popular TV show Game of Thrones. American adults plan to either call in sick, use a personal day off at the last minute on Monday or use a vacation day, and for those who typically work on Sundays the intention is to either use a vacation day, make other arrangements for work or to call in sick. Another 2.9 million said that they were likely to show up late to work on Monday morning after having watched the finale the night before.

Supplementary notes

The way the data was calculated for those who intend to skip work was as follows:

234.6 U.S. adults (according to 2010 U.S. census), multiplied by 61 percent of employed adults, multiplied by 34 percent who plan to watch the finale live, multiplied by 22 percent who plan to call in sick, use a personal day at the last minute on Monday or make other arrangements i.e. using a vacation day.
This group also includes those who normally work on Sunday nights but intend to make other arrangements (or call in sick). The number for this group stood at 5.8 million and was calculated as above aside from the final percentage which in this instance amounted to 12 percent.

For those intending to work remotely or show up late to work on Monday morning, the calculation was the same aside from the final percentages, which for these groups were seven percent and six percent respectively.
