On the days that they worked, employed men worked about three-quarters of an hour more than employed women.
This difference partly reflects women's greater likelihood of working part time. However, even among full-time workers (those usually working 35 hours or more per week), men worked slightly longer than women—8.2 versus 7.8 hours.
Among part-time workers, men averaged 5.2 hours on days they worked and women averaged 5.4 hours.
