Roll-over details alleviate the normal pie-chart problems (somewhat).  However, who averages 8.6 hours of sleep a day and only 3.5 hours of work?  Maybe I’m just not average. The related article talks about the impact of higher unemployment on this data.

Yep, the data as shown is pretty useless – lumping unemployed and employed makes it hard to discern whether greater unemployment, or fewer work hours for the employed is affecting the data. A shame, as that data is available.

I would guess sleep is when you go to bed/get up, not when you actually fall asleep/wake….
