How Different Groups Spend Their Day [nytimes.com] is an interactive stacked line graph based on data from the American Time Use Survey, which asked thousands of American residents (over the age of 15) to recall every minute of a day

The accompanying NYTimes news article compares the weekday activities of the employed and unemployed: "On an average weekday, the unemployed sleep an hour more than their employed peers. They tidy the house, do laundry and yard work for more than two hours, twice as much as the employed. The unemployed also spend an extra hour in the classroom and an additional 70 minutes in front of the television." Other comparisons can be made by gender, race, age, education or the amount of children.

Reminds me of What People in Tokyo are Doing on a Tuesday, with bits of DailyRadar Trendmap and Subsidyscope.
