How men spend their time

Via the Atlantic, this is quite interesting:
Educated men today, it appears, do more to support their educated, career-oriented wives and their communities. Lower class men reserve more time for themselves. It’s one more bit of evidence of how the country is splitting culturally as it splits economically.
My own observations. There’s no way the average college educated man is spending 8 hours/night sleeping and 8+ for the less educated. Strongly suggests some problems with the subjectivity of the data. As for me, compared to other educated men: less sleep, less work, more childcare, more housework, and less repair. My big existential question– is walking the dog exercise or pet care? As for gardening and lawn care you can put me in pretty close to 0.
