Analysis of Age, Race, and Income as Factors of Work Time
The purpose of our analysis is to examine the relationship that age and race, split by income group, have on the number of hours per day spent on work and related activities. Using Annual American Time Use Survey data from the IPUMS database, spanning the years 2015 to 2020, we fit two multiple regression models with work hours per day as the response. Our models suggest that for all income levels, work hours do not decrease as the age of the working increases. Additionally, the race of the worker does not change the relationship between age and work hours for all income levels.
