The Number of Weeks Americans Worked in the Last 12 Months – Visualized by Age



The American Community Survey estimates that 38.6% of people worked 50 to 52 weeks in the last 12 months ago. I decided I wanted to take a look at this data by age using some of my recent age distribution visualizations as a template. Here are the results.

Data Notes

The data for this visualization comes from the American Community Survey which is completed by the US Census Bureau. I used the 2014 One Year Estimates Public Use Microdata Sample which can be found on the ACS Website. This visualization uses Tableau to show the number of weeks people worked for every age.
