Every day we have just 24 hours to accomplish it all. And, every day we make hundreds of decisions to parse out those 24 hours. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics in its American Time Use Survey examines just how Americans divvy up their time with input gathered from over 180,000 interviewees aged 15 and older. The survey yields unique insight into"how, where, and with whom Americans spend their time”. Following are a few "how" highlights from the 2016 survey:

  • In 2016, Americans spent an additional 11 minutes on average daily on “relaxation and leisure”, with TV viewing accounting for the largest gain, especially among male respondents. Men seeking jobs also reported spending about 50 minutes more per day job seeking than they did in 2003.
  • American women added the most time to “personal/private activities”, however, only 0.5 percent of surveyed women indicated spending any time on this activity. The top 10 activities for women overall were unchanged between 2003 and 2016, with personal care, sleep, and leisure and sports accounting for the top three activities.
  • A variety of other distinct, gender specific habits emerges from the data. American men reported working roughly 1.5 hours more per day in 2016 than American women and reported more time spent on sports, watching TV, and playing games. In contrast, women reported more time for sleep, personal grooming, and housework.

Nuclear Testing: North Korea Breaking Ban

On September 11, the UN Security Council adopted its 8th sanction resolution against North Korea. The resolution came in response to the country’s nuclear test on September 3 in violation of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty of 1996 (CTBT) banning nuclear explosions regardless of purpose. The test was the sixth violation by North Korea.

A total of eight sanction resolutions have been adopted, including...

Семья, работа, друзья, отдых, религия и политика - что люди в разных странах ценят больше?

В 2010-2014 годах Венский Институт Сравнительных Социальных Исследований провел изучение жизненных ценностей населения мира в шестой раз. Впервые оно было проведено еще в 1981 году и с тех пор проводится каждые пять лет, охватив за это время около 400 тысяч человек из почти 100 стран мира, составляющих 90% мирового населения. Это делает его самым большим международным исследованием ценностей, взглядов и убеждений людей, которое когда-либо проводилось в мире. Последняя волна исследования включила в себя опрос 80 тысяч человек из 60 стран мира. В рамках опроса людям было предложено ответить на более чем двести вопросов, касающихся их...

The overall index scores rank countries based on their efficiency, how many long and happy lives each produces per unit of environmental output. How do high-income Western countries compare with the countries that top the overall HPI rankings?

Aging Society as an Agent of Economic Change in India

People are living longer and, in some parts of the world, healthier lives. This represents one of the crowning achievements of the last century but also a significant challenge. Longer lives must be planned for. Societal aging may affect economic growth and many other issues, including the sustainability of families, the ability of states and communities to provide resources for older citizens, and international relations. Preparing financially for longer lives and finding ways to reduce aging-related disability should become national and global priorities. Experience shows that for nations, as for individuals, it is critical to address...
