Americans Value Free Time Over Being Rich, Survey Finds

Rate This

NEW YORK (Reuters Life!) - Having enough free time is more important to most Americans than being rich, according to a new poll.

Only 13 percent of more than 2,400 people questioned in the telephone poll ranked being wealthy as most important to them, while 67 percent ranked free time as their top priority, higher than having a successful career, getting married, and having children.

"Everyone wants free time to do the things they want to do, young, middle-aged or old," said Richard Morin, of the Pew Social & Demographic Trends Project, which conducted the survey.
