Note
Data are normalized to 1440 minutes per day. In other words, for those countries for which the time use does not sum up to 1440 minutes, the missing minutes are equally distributed across all activities. Australia: 15 years and over, China: 15-74 years, Hungary: 15-74 years, Norway: 16-74 years, Sweden: 25-64 years. The classification of activities tends to differ across countries: the assignment of time allocated to the activity categories defined by the OECD can only be approximated in some countries where highly detailed data are not available. Caution is thus needed in cross-country comparisons whenever the differences in minutes are not large.
