walkingtoworkWhat time do you start work every day? Are you an early bird who gets to work in time to see the sunrise? Or, do you take a more leisurely approach to your work day and arrive after the morning rush hour? Well, according to Nate Silver at 538 blog, we Kansas Citians start our workday at 7:51 a.m. Silver used data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey to calculate a median start time for workdays in 40 metros.

We are on the early side of the national average of 7:55 a.m. Houston and Phoenix were two large metros who start work earlier than us, but just barely (both start at 7:45 a.m.).

On the other end of the scale, the late-start metros tend to be located on the coasts. In Boston, the average workday starts at 8:11 a.m.  In San Jose, it’s 8:21. And finally, if the snooze button is your best friend, then New York is the place for you. There, a typical workday doesn’t start until 8:24.
