Supplementary notes
Figures are based on numbers collated by the OECD from the various national time use surveys of the countries included in the statistic.

Data are normalized to 1440 minutes per day. In other words, for those countries for which the time use does not sum up to 1440 minutes, the missing minutes are equally distributed across all activities.

Age group is 15-64 for all countries but Australia (15+), Hungary (15-74), Sweden (25-64) and China (15-74).
