Free Time + Labour Time Doesn't Add Up

Free time 6.39 h/day 6.48 h/day
Labour Time 7.82 h/day 8.31 h/day

How can both free time and labour time be below the average? Where did the time go? o.O

I noticed free time crashed after passing prohibition, banning video games, and regulating TV to educational programs only. Shouldn't that increase free time since people are doing other things besides drinking and becoming couch potatoes?


Why return? That's a good question.

I have no idea, but I guess these values do not have to add up. It would be possible that they also consider the time one requires to travel to ones working place, resting hours, time you have to spend with other activities - sport, lectures (based on some task where you can force people to do certain activities) - and that these times are simply not considered in Labour & Leisure Time.

At least prohibition actually makes sense. Now half the people are busy smuggling awful booze, while the other half needs a lot of time to recover from the headaches ... Wink

RE: Free Time + Labour Time Doesn't Add Up

My time seems to have somewhat recovered, but I'm still wondering where it goes:

Free time 6.98 h/day 6.50 h/day
Labour Time 7.81 h/day 8.29 h/day

On the side, I've noticed inflation seems out of whack:

Annual average of inflation 3.17 % 2.12 %
Commodity index [?] 1.24 1.26


Why return? That's a good question.
