Abstract: ERS researchers used data from the Eating & Health Module of the 2014-16 American Time Use Survey to see if time spent eating varies by adult subpopulations. The researchers found that time spent eating increased with age and educational attainment. Healthy weight individuals were found to spend more time eating than those who were overweight or obese.
