We Americans are a busy bunch. We shop. We worship. We tend to our families. But mostly we eat, sleep, work and watch TV. That's the key finding from a University of California researcher who's made it his mission to help average people visualize complex sets of data.

Nathan Yao, who's published his findings in an interactive chart (shown below) at his website, FlowingData.com, says he was inspired to build his graphic by a New York Times article. It looked at an American Time Use Survey on how Americans fill their days.
