How the Typical American Day Has Changed in the Last 15 Years
Interior maintenance, repair, and decoration
– Average time spent on activity: 2.03 hours/day (-15.8% 15-year change)
– Population engaged in activity: 2.8% (-28.2% 15-year change)
– Average time spent on activity: 2.41 hours/day
– Population engaged in activity: 3.9%
With the rise of handyman platforms like TaskRabbit and Handy over the past 15 years, it’s become far easier to find and vet people to handle our maintenance and repair tasks.
Also, as American incomes rise, so does the American family’s disposable income. These could be contributing factors to the fact that fewer Americans spend time on their own maintenance and repairs and choose instead to farm them out.
