Working-time patterns


all respondents were asked about patterns across all their jobs. We collected the following working-time information:

  • usual working time
  • usual number of days worked per week
  • overall work pattern (mainly daytime, mainly evening, mainly night, changing shifts, other)
  • preference for working at different times of the day than those usually worked
  • whether they worked long hours and if this caused any difficulties
  • preference for working fewer hours and earning less in their main job.

Respondents who had worked in the four weeks before the interview were also asked the following information for that four-week period:

incidence of work for one hour or more at non-standard times – the number of times worked at night, in the evening, in the early morning, on a Saturday, and on a Sunday payment for any work done at the weekend or in the evening any difficulties caused by working at a non-standard time number of hours of paid overtime and other extra unpaid hours.

The numbers and proportions for people who did some work on Saturdays and Sundays may be slightly underestimated in the tables. These figures do not include people who did weekend work but did not specify if they worked on a Saturday or a Sunday, or those who did not know how many times they worked on a Saturday or a Sunday in the last four weeks.
