Governing, a magazine about state and local governments, built a map that shows in stark terms just how much Mainers actually work.

According to the site, which compiled data from the U.S. Department of Labor’s American Time Use Survey, Mainers spend more of their time on work-related tasks than any other state.

The survey shows the average daily time that respondents said they dedicated to certain things from 2010 to 2014 — including eating and drinking, caring for their kids and exercise.

When it comes to work, Mainers spent an average of 4.05 hours a day on activities related to making money.

As Governing put it:

This broad definition of work considers the amount of time people spend engaged in income-generating activities, including tasks related to work (business lunches) or time spent looking for a job.

Now, you’re probably thinking, “Wait a minute — I work 10 hours a day!” But this survey includes people who don’t work, which drives the number down.

Meanwhile, we tied for dead-last place with New Hampshire when it comes to time spent volunteering or going to church — which kind of makes sense: we’re too busy working, after all. Plus, we’re less Christian than we used to be.

(Some of the states in this map are gray because they don’t have any data for this particular statistic.)

And Maine may be a budding foodie and beer-brewing mecca, but we spend slightly less time eating and drinking than almost all the other New England states.
