I use the American Time Use Survey between 2003-2018 to study how education affects work and leisure time use. I find that higher education is associated with more time spent on work and less time on leisure. This is robust if we control the effect of income, gender, and age. In addition, we also find there has been a trend decline in work and an increase in leisure time over the sample period, which is mostly explained by the change in old people.
