(CNN) - Who works the most minutes each day at home and work?

Japan may be the first to spring to mind, with its legendary work ethic, but according to the latest study by the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development, Japan comes in second place with an average of  540 minutes, or nine hours, spent doing paid work and chores such as shopping and cooking.

So what nation is the hardest working in the world? Mexico, according to the OECD.

As the chart above shows breaking down daily minutes of work, Mexicans spend 594 minutes, or 9.9 hours, doing paid or unpaid work each day.

The nation that works the least, according to the survey of 29 economies, is Belgium with a total of 427 minutes (7.1 hours) of work each day.

The OECD average was 277 minutes (4.6 hours) of paid work, and 207 minutes (3.45 hours) of unpaid work each day.

How much some other major economies worked: China (8.4 hours of paid and unpaid work), The U.S. (8.3 hours), India (8.1 hours), Australia (8 hours), the UK (7.8 hours), France (7.5 hours) and Germany (7.4 hours).

In total minutes of paid work only, Japan worked the most with 6.3 hours on average each day.  Denmark worked the least paid time (3.75 hours).

Mexico had the highest average of unpaid work (4.2 hours) and Korea the least (1.3 hours).

French spent the most unpaid time doing shopping each day (32 minutes) while Koreans did the least (13 minutes).

  1. Really?

    This study is flawed. Did the OECD take into account the two hour lunch (2 to 4) that is the norm for employees in Mexico. They are paid during this time. The Mexican work ethic is lax and questionable for employees of larger corporations. Work is conducted with a HEAVY dose of socializing. The usual work period is between 9 to 2 and 4 to 6.

    Korea in last? lol, they should be 2nd, company workers work from sun up until 10 or 11pm, some of that work is unpaid, I think you guys need to do more research.

    This chart is missing Romanian teachers who are among the worst paid in the world. An excellent example would be the extra hours in some universities where as much as more than half of them (more then 60 teaching hours/month) are free of pay... Enjoy your own countries folks!...

    Really: you must be thinking of an other country. I've lived in Mexico, there are no 2-4 hour lunches. The fact that you suggest this indicates a lack of knowledge about Mexico, the work ethic and the people. You need to stop getting your information through old TV shows.

    More like you need to stop getting your information on Mexicans from racial stereotypes.

    I found it interesting when I went to Virginia on a business trip, that almost the entire hotel staff is Mexican. It is pretty obvious who is doing the work.

    These statistics are quite skewed. Differences between development and cultural differences in work ethics should be weighed in greatly. – I've spent the past decade working and living in China, and there is no possible way that these statistics are a true representation of China. – I'm not saying they are lazy or anything of the sort, but the work culture in China is quite different. With half the population living being rural/farmers, farming little more than 2 or 3 acres of land, and with the commonality of an hour long sleep break after an hour long lunch (in urban areas)... there is no way that you can get me to believe that it is "harder working" than the US.

    come to nigeria! Local manager can come at 10.30 – 11am, having breakfast for 1 hour, then work (inefficiently) till 2 pm, then having lunch for 1 hour plus, then going home by 5pm, and the good news is.... they get paid for 8 hours (official working hours is 8 to 5).
    Oh yaa... one more thing... they can leave office for whatever reason, and it wont b considered as leave.
    Plus... one more... if the boss is not around... yes... they can come at 3pm... without any need to explain why.

    As usual, Taiwan is forgotten because everybody is affraid of China... Nevertheless, the Taiwanese would probably have come in first of second place in this study. Right now, the huge local legislative debate is about reducing work hours, averaging 12hrs a day, to stop people from dying from overwork. Just Check the Taipei Times over the last few days......!!

    I thought what's more important is the productivity achieved by working all these hours. Who cares if an employee works 6 hours, but achieves a productivity average of 4 hours.
    Time has changed, companies are pushing their employees to be more productive humans not work horses, and that's why this study is flawed

    I am an American working in Mexico and to say that in Mexico people have 2 hour lunches is nonsense. That was a loooong time ago. The 2 hour lunch was when people could go home to eat. That in Mexico City is impossible now due to traffic, so normally get between 45 minutes and 1 hour. I get 45 minutes.In my company we work from 8:30AM to 1:30pm and from 2:15 to 5:45. So update your information.

    Just because one country works the most hours, doesn't mean it's the most efficient. Look at Germany, for example, working way less hours than Mexico, but producing much more. It's all about efficiency.

    South Korea has a great work ethnic. Everything is done quickly, and people are expected to do their best with everything that they do. Work starts at sunrise, and ends definitely after 10 PM. A lot of the time, work ends after or around 12 PM.

    This is how we have become such a developed country within just half a century. And I smirk when people think of Seoul and the rest of South Korea as some 'developing country.' It's much more developed and much, much busier than New York.

    How come Singapore is missing from the chart? Basically, Singaporeans work very long hours on an average of 10:30 hrs minus off between 1/2 hr – 1 hr for lunch n yet paid one of the lowest. This isn't taking into account the many others that work even longer hours than this. OECD needs to do a more thorough n intensive study on ALL countries and get their findings more accurate.

    What that research doesn't mention is that if I drive to work at 6 AM, I'm in a traffic jam for 1 hour, and when I drive home at 6 at night, I'm in another 1 hour traffic jam. So go add those 2 hours each day and tell how the stats look then.

  46. In Japan - first hand

    I work in a Japanese organization with great Japanese people. I agree they do spend a lot of time at work, however they do little work at their workplace, and get paid a lot for the little they do. Tradition feeds inefficiency, protectionism pays the inefficient. It explains why they are 225% in GDP debt, right after Zimbabwe.

    Mexicans ...... I have still yet to meet an inefficent Mexi-CAN. Too bad they don't get paid for all of what they do.

    to mr yousaf siddiqui, yes pakistan has about 180 million people, but not every country can be included in the research/study, there must have been some form or critieria or random method of picking the above studied countries so it should not really be a cause for concern that your country isnt there. if it makes you feel better, my country is also ommited from the studied countries.

    If you work longer hours does not necessarily mean that you are highly productive. On the contrary. It would be interesting though to see the difference between working for the public or working for the private sector. In the former any overtime should be duly paid, so productivity tends to be higher. In the former overtime is seen, at lesat by some, like an offering, a personal sacrifice to the State, so at the end of the month there is not any extra cash for you to withdraw from the ATM.

    Top Man: The USA is, currently and statistically, the #1 economy in the world. No one, including our president, ever said we are the hardest working 'country'. To the contrary, we're being told to 'step it up'. We've been falling behind in this category (mentioned in the article) for years now.

    Which means economic strength has almost nothing to do how manuy hours you work daily.

    Koreans don't really 'work' during all the time they spend in the office. They are just expected to be there all day and night. Half the time they are just cruising the internet. If they won't stay in the office for the hours someone else will. I've been living and working with them for 2 years in South Korea. I see it all the time.

    Hi all;

    This doesnot consider the fact that USA and Japan workers spend most of the regular hrs being inefficient, reading the newspaper all day, and doing their job after regular hrs to look good to the boss and get payed higher rates for overwork.

    Living in the Netherlands for a Canadian company, we work to live (as opposed to the USA where people live to work), meanwhile our labour output is higher than that form my Canadian co-workers who spend more time on procedures and meetings.

    I agree with some, South Korea probably should be at the top. Simply put, Koreans don't leave before their boss. My acquaintances there basically told me the following: You come at 8 in the morning, and leave at midnight. If your boss wants to go get a drink, you must follow. So during my weekdays I wake up at six AM and to go bed at 2 to 4 AM the next day.

    They basically "work" 12 hours a day.

    April 13, 2011 at 2:21 pm |
  66. Get real!

    @ b kim...In fact, the average Korean worker is much less productive than many of his/her global counterparts (28th among 30 OECD countries surveyed in 2009 – Chosun Ilbo News, Dec. 09, 2010), hence the need to have a work day that, as you say, "starts at sunrise, and ends definitely after 10 PM." By the way, when you stop smirking, you may like to know that "12 PM" is lunchtime.

    Israel, Singapore, Pakistan and Africa are not included because none of those 'countries' matter.

    Israel and Sing are the size of an American city.

    Africa – who cares about Africa. How do you measure the 'work' of raping, murdering and corrupting?

    Pakistan? No measurements there because a non-Paki who sets foot there is killed. 180 million people wasting their time.

    And the Mexico #1 bit only goes to show how much of a waste of time these studies can be. In science, 'work' is a a function of output, not 'time in'.

    So maybe we should measure productive time, then Mexico won't matter.

    And Canadians work hard, but not as hard as Americans, no doubt.

    The average working day for most engineers in Taiwan is 8am til 11pm, 6 days a week and often on Sunday. Last year when the economy was worse they were asked to change to a 4 days paid working week but still work 6 days a week (2 days volunteer)!
    There is something strange about the stats above!

    All this study shows is time on the clock, doing paid or unpaid work. The real measure of hard work is productivity and, using that measurement, Mexicans fall far short of workers of other nationalities. Sorry to burst another politically correct bubble.

    Do you really believe mexican people loves to spent 2 hours more of work eating instead of being in house with our family? That's a wrong assumption. I am mexican and compared to many other countries and nationalities, they have a more relaxed work/roll. I believe that mexicans work really hard,but also people in the office looks you like a lazy person if you leave in your time.

    I work in a different country than Mexico but Im mexican from Mexico city and yep! it so true! mexicans work a lot for unpaid work! we deserve the position #1 but the fact is that most of the times you do a responsibility based job so it does not matter how many hours you are paid you have get all done! Mexican culture is like that and because there are so many people looking for a job outside you know that if you dont do it the company can get someone else to do it so thats why we can complain for those extra not paid hours! we dont take 2 hours for lunch, its is 1 at max
    Its a shame employers in Mexico take advantage of employees. Who do you think gets most of the work done in the US?

    the official time is 1 hour, it is paid, but you have to work 9 hours.
    Example.. you work 8 hours and you get 1 hour to eat in the work's kitchen.. total time in the company.. 9 hours.
    also the numbers are very high because sometimes Mexican workers have been forced to work extra hours with no pay with fear of lossing their jobs.

    To the people talking about why they excluded some countries, these were probably unavailable for an in-depth analysis due to lacking data on the total workforce.

    Well, what is best? Work most or least hours? Considering prosperity from hours EU countries win flat out.
    Likely the hours are averaged over the number of people in a working age. Should actually be averaged over the number of people's assigned working hours. Result will be quite different. Productivity in EU like Germany, France, Holland is so much higher then elsewhere in the world.

    It's Nigeria. Because in Nigeria some workers are using 12hrs/day some 8hrs/day but monthly rate. Imagine after that hard working you cannot recieve your salary in right time, especially government workers. In some cases you can spend morethan a week or 2 weeks in the next month, before you get the last month salary.

    PLEASE READ THE FIRST LINE OF THE ARTICLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    And maybe actually click through the link to read the actual study too.

    Unpaid work is "the things you need to do to live your life", not "work I'm doing at work to keep my job". That's still "paid" work under the study's definition regardless of whether the over time is compensated or not. As someone else mentioned, "unpaid" doesn't seem to account for commuting. It also doesn't seem to account for a swath of parenting duties that could be considered "work" (anyone not think taking the kids to soccer practice is work?).

    Hi everybody! I'm Mexican, and I can only say that Mexicans do spend a lot of time at work. This study didn't include effectiveness and efficiency. The best worker is not the one who works more minutes per day, but the one who can accomplish a task in an efficient and effective manner. Mexico needs to improve in those aspects. Mexicans are very good at procrastinating (some people can spend 8 hours without accomplishing nothing) and sadly with stupid Mexican business paradigms in which bosses give more importance to imagery, treat workers like slaves and so on. Mexican workers will pretend to be working, rather than doing the actual work.

    Numbers of hours "at work" does NOT translate directly into productivity or even 'hard work". Some people are just much more productive because of their intelligence and efficiency.

    Why is working made into another competition? And why is the country working the hardest being presented as the winners? We in Europe pay the most for housing and energy for instance but we still manage to preserve precious time for ourselves. Isn't that the best deal in the end?

    These calculations are based on official data, not the unofficial such as illegal aliens, slaves, etc. So the actual country where the average person works the most, may well be countries where the data is most obscure. Communist countries spring to mind, namely China, but also Western nations where so many immigrants are not accounted for.

    And this information means absolutely nothing unless you factor in how much they get paid per hour, how much they are taxed on what they earn and what is done with the tax revenue that their governments collect from their efforts.
    There are successful countries right alongside countries that are bankrupt. Simply looking at the amount of "work" performed is pointless.

Since work hours are usually until 5 or 6pm, few Germans would then go home and spent the evening renovating and doing up their gardens, instead of spending quality time with their families! Jesus, all these unfounded assumptions about other countries!

  117. Really?

    Gepids / Castleray – I'm a foreigner whose lived and done business in the U.S., U.K., Australia and in many Asian countries. I'm in Mexico City currently trying to get two businesses set up. I'm speaking on behalf of my first hand experience. My suppliers / manufacturers don't deliver on time due and when they do not according to agreed basis... I've been living in a hotel for the past 2 months and I see the same people coming into the restaurant for 2 or 3 hours at a time happily "working" away. Friday's after 2pm nothing gets done with the businesses I've dealt with. Agreed that people not necessarily go home for lunch but are at the local restaurants or shopping etc.

    Spending time in an office does NOT equal working. And working does NOT equal working efficiently or productively.

    Many Mexicans are great at projecting to be working when in fact they're trying to see how they can drag something on for longer. It is ingrained in them to see if they can get something for nothing. Mexicans who I've addressed this issue with blame the Spanish...go figure...

    And don't get me started on the business ethic here. Over promise (answer Yes to everything even when they don't have an idea of the product or service) and under-deliver (if they even do deliver). Forget about any contracts or money fronted. No respect for one's time and they behave as life is party not taking into consideration the follow-on effects. Even my Mexican national friends, who are all top MBA graduates, lament on doing business in Mexico and the work ethic. Most of them couldn't wait to get out of Mexico and dread coming back!

    Marcialc – U.S. firms move here because of the cost of labor and tax concessions, as I have. Price competitiveness is more important in a global environment even when it comes at cost of productivity. Not for efficiency.

    As a mexican i can tell you that we are the persons that work harder in the world but working alot of hours doesnt mean that we are effective.... probably if the half of the people making comments came to México to work and probably if half the people commenting to come to work in Mexico they would work would ensure that if the number of hours worked but not by choice but by necessity, and would not work efficiently because they usually do not receive pay for goods produced but by hours worked.

    Seriously, People. This is an article that is announcing the results of a study, not the study itself!! Everyone is sitting here complaining about the validity of the study and yet I'll bet only 5% of you actually clicked on the link and read the ENTIRE study! This article on CNN is just a summary, it's not that difficult of a concept. The Americans commenting on this article are the most embarrassing because our culture and education and online usage leaves absolutely no excuse for the stupid comments being made by my fellow Americans. You're commenting on the 'stupid' study, but you clearly have no idea what the parameters of the study were! The ignorance of my fellow Americans is infuriating, especially considering how many resources we have here.

    To those around the world, please do not let Americans lead you astray – only 20% of our population even owns a passport, so most have no business commenting on anything remotely international because they have no direct experience! Most never even leave their state or region and don't read books. Do not accept articles at face value – do more research and read the primary data source which is the OECD report itself, which you can access in its entirety by clicking the blue bolded words 'the latest study' in the second sentence of the article. It will bring you to the OECD site where you can download the report.

    Mexico being the ones spending most of the time working?. Maybe yes, but also many of this time is dead time, so its ineffective. As a mexican, I can say that its really a hard issue trying to deal with "serious" suppliers or clients. They are used to establish a "due date", and not doing anything until its "late" and have wasted many time and resources, and then they start working extra hours, saturdays, sundays, or just trying to re-negotiate the due date. Also this only applies to some companies. Goverment or any public office, they are just lazy as hell.

    The reality in Korea is that the employers will force people to work longer hours but Koreans don't work more, they just stretch 8 hours of productivity into twelve hours then jump out of their seats and bow to their masters when they make the rounds.

    I think no one has mentioned the informal/side work part, for all the countries in the study. For example, here in Mexico a lot of people are, apart from working in their full time jobs, getting involved in side jobs such as selling Avon/Tupperware articles, investing in micro-companies, selling vacation plans and other activities that sum up to almost 16 daily hours of work in some cases. And I am not only speaking about low-income families. Even people with full college preparation and middle level employment are involved in this. Im in that case.

I live in this country. If we were so productive we would not have 1000 lb. whales walking around. Just got to hate on Mexico. Just accept it or try to keep up. Education is a problem for 1st generation but the latter generations are coming in strong. In no time if we keep talking and sitting on the work of our grandparents (ancestors) NOT THE CURRENT AMERICANS.....then we will be outcompeted. If you disagree your lying to yourself.

    I've been living in Mexico for almost 3 years now and I've worked at several American corporations as an English teacher. Everyone definitely works longer hours compared with their American colleagues. I asked them about over time and some of them didn't even know what that meant... I've also noticed that a lot of these corporations hire them as 'outsourcing' and these employees, no matter how many hours they work, get absolutely no benefits.

    Why, yes. Mexicans are indeed among the most hardworking people on the planet. Whether caring for our homes, our children, our wives and husbands or putting in those dawn to dusk shifts and odd jobs (as I have seen many of my Mexican neighbors and acquaintances do) we do what has to be done. Non-Mexican, non-indigenous so-called "Americans" have no right to complain. The laziest folks in my work place are Blacks and Whites in that order. The hardest working 100 % of the time have been Mexicans, Guatemalans, Peruvians, and Asians of various nationalities. Our cultures inculcate in us a strong work ethic very early on. Just ask those Mexican roofers (probably an odd job for many) how they can finish an entire roof in one day. Whether it is building the largest, most beautiful city in the world in its time (Tenochtitlan, city on the lake) on what was once hostile wetland and marsh in little over 100 years, or the hundreds of years of unfortunate slavery to debt peonage, to the present day, the Mexican is a person of industry. Don't let some grouchy "American" tell you otherwise. They probably aren't working themselves.

    Mexicans get up early and accomplish more in the first four hours of daylight than most Americans do(except farmers, doctors and teachers). As a kid growing up along the US/Mexico border I'll tell you, people were driving into the fields at 5:00AM and working to get the salads and ingredients for the households we in the "first world" USA, people of all ages working on food prep and cleaning, where would the USA really be without Mexicans? I went to a hotel in Ohio last month, and breakfast was turtle slow, NO Mexicans worked there, darker people did with a few lighter faces in charge if ya get my drift,

    Two hours lunch? what are you talking about? first of all, the majority of jobs in mexico aren't in offices like the U.S., if anything, those two hour lunches are done by management type people with high egos (trust me, people with higher education think they deserve more free time anywhere in the world). The common Mexcian worker does not take that long of a lunch..trust me, I know...STOP ASSUMING THE STEREOTYPES! It's sad that these things hinders us from getting far in life

    Funny thing, "hardest working in the world" doesn't necessarily translate into prosperity, good standard of living, or personal wealth on an average individual basis. Most of the individuals in the countries at the top of this list are pretty poor. Even U.S. citizens average income has dropped by at least 5% in the past 10 years, as our work obligations and productivity have increased dramatically. The Netherlands has one of the highest standards of living in the world, and national healthcare. Yes, their taxes are probably twice what we pay in the U.S., but (1.) everyone knows the U.S. already has the lowest tax rates of any industrialized country, and (2.) the social-economic structure benefits both business and individuals. 58% of U.S. households earn (and often need) two incomes. Only 84% of Netherlands households get by on just 1 income (a benefit those in the U.S. enjoyed through the 1950's, and which significantly reduces the overhead, costs and necessity of daycare and after-school programs). Overall, given how technology has significantly increased our productivity (and the amount of money we generate for our employers), I'd love some reciprocity here. 50 to 60 hours per week, plus time spent commuting and scrambling to do chores in the off-hours, in just too much. Business should enjoy the fruits of my labor, but I want a better standard of living. It's my life I'm giving to these companies. Let me enjoy some of it.

    Maybe Mexico might be the hardest working nation but they do low grade work and are still ranked 61 in the world for wealthiest nations, thats the difference between Japan, America, Canada, China, Germany and so on while these nations are in the top ten for there wealth. Work smarter not harder, Thats why this poll is BS, I come from a military family in the Uninted States we all work over 50hrs a week some times 6 days a week.

    Please, the only things Mexicans work hard at are bringing drugs over the borders and stilling jobs from the hard working Americans who dug this nation out with there own hands and breaking backs while burying there familys along the way so that some day there future generations would not have to give so much sweat, and blood and reap there harvest not so it could be stolen by a bunch of cowards who cant stay in there country to make it better for themselves, well it is easier to steal something than earn it, and Mexicans are stereotyped as being thieves lol.

    I agree Mexico works very hard. Unfortunately, every one swims on different directions; and that doesn't help in terms of productiveness. Mexicans have a very high sense of responsability (contrary to stereotypes) and place their heart to their work (almost all of the mexicans). Now, for this chart; it is important to notice that mexicans still want to prove to their bosses how hard they work, by spending extra hours at the office. The longer they stay, the safer they feel on the office. Maybe thats what this chart portrays. Nevertheless, mexicans DO work very hard (and please, share the hard data on the 2 hour lunch.... hahahaha...).

    This post is full of immature guys who compare working hours like children compare whose toy cars run the fattest, talking about all the partially-true fact of their own nations while bashing all the rest of others. It's a global age, and yet so many are still thinking in ethnic terms. I really don't get what's so AWEsome about one country working a bit more than the others-it doesn't make anybody happier, healthier or better person, just satisfying some childish notion that longer working hours equal stronger power~

    I live & work in Belgium for a multinational corporation. Legally I am only supposed to work 7,5 hours a day. I work sometimes 9. While a colleague works normally 9 or 10 hours.

    Furthermore, as Chanya pointed out, traffic here is a nightmare. Brussels & it's hinderland often tops European surveys for traffic congestion.
