It seems vacation days are less important to the majority of Americans. According to a survey of 1500 Americans, conducted in early 2015 through google consumer survey, approximately 42 percent of Americans did not use any of their vacation days. Furthermore, women took fewer vacation days than men. Americans who were earning a low income seems to make up the majority of the nearly 42 percent. One would believe that workers would be happy to take a break from work but as the pie chart depicts, that's not the case. Lets see if the number will be lower in 2015.

Interesting observation, Kenrick. Your comment about differences based on income sounds important. Can you post a companion post that spells that out in a graph? Otherwise, your statement hangs out there without specific backup. Anyway, good stuff.

It's interesting to learn that women took fewer vacation days than did men last year. I would be interested in seeing the stats on that and what factors could be driving that trend.
