Research finds women have less free time in the week than men
A new survey has found that women have five hours less free time in a week than men.
According to the report, which was carried out by ONS, men have 43 hours of leisure time during the week, and women only have 38 hours.
The Independent UK says that analysis suggests that women spend more hours completing chores around the house as men do.
The report states: "Leisure time for women could be less than for men because although women are more frequently engaged in part-time work than men, they spend more time completing unpaid work such as household chores and childcare.
"The hours spent on unpaid work are likely to replace those hours that could have been spent on leisure activities."
People aged 25 to 34 have the least amount of leisure time in comparison to any other age group, while 16 to 24 year-olds have the highest amount of leisure time in a week.
