Mexicans spend the most time on domestic cleaning, study reveals

Mexicans devote more than three hours every day to the process of Domestic Cleaning and cooking, a new study has revealed.

Research conducted by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) showed how long people in a number of countries spend working – both paid and unpaid – each day.

Overall, the Mexicans spent more than ten hours either in paid employment or completing tasks such as hard floor cleaning or washing and ironing.

The average amount of work done was eight hours a day, while the Belgians were deemed to do the least, as they toiled for just seven hours.

According to the study, the UK was at the lower end of the spectrum, while people in Japan and Korea spent large amounts of time in paid jobs, but set aside less hours for domestic chores.

Time spent shopping was also factored into the statistics, with OECD chiefs claiming that people dedicated 23 minutes each day on average to fetching supplies.

The OEDC is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, although the organisation was set-up under a different guise in 1947 and its primary job is to promote policies to boost economic and social welfare globally.
