Résumé : This chapter examines data describing the time that people spend in each of the many activities that make up their day. It focuses on data from the late 1980s and early 1990s, and from the early 2000s, for Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and the USA. It considers patterns and changes in nonwork activities that are classified into several major groups. It then raises questions such as: how do patterns of work activities differ over the week, and over the day, in the EU and USA? Would market work in the EU look the same as in the USA if Europeans had the same patterns of daily and weekly market activity as Americans?
