Who works the longest hours?

Do you work a lot or a little? Type in your hours, and we’ll tell you how you compare with the average employee in your own country, and the average across 34 developed nations.

The figures come from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), sometimes referred to as the rich countries’ club, which gathers them from its 34 members. A global comparison of working hours is impossible because of the lack of comparable data. As Wesley Stephenson of BBC radio’s More or Less programme explains, developing countries often work longer hours, but working longer doesn’t necessarily mean working better.
