Muscovites Work Less

The research of the State Committee for Statistics (Rosstat) has disproved the classic stereotypes of Moscow as a city where life never stops. People in Moscow do not work tirelessly.
       The study of seven Russian regions showed, that the duration of working time in Moscow is shorter than in other regions. Most Muscovites have only one job and men are able to sleep a little bit longer than women. The working day in Moscow lasts about 8 hours and 14 minutes, while the average of working time is about 5 hours 33 minutes.
       The most exploited age group is a group consisting of young people aged 25-29 years (their working time is about 8 hours and 52 minutes), the leaders of overtime working are men of 55-59 years — they spend at work 9 hours 21 min.
       According to the research, Moscow residents have an opportunity to sleep longer than citizens of other regions, they also have much more rest at their work. This situation occured due to the high concentration of government agencies and management structures and almost complete absence of industrial production in the city.
       In addition, Muscovites are less interested in television programs, newspapers and books. Their free time they spend waiting in traffic jams.
