Abstract

Based on a new time-use survey for Denmark, we categorized people by their chronotype and investigated whether morning types earned more than evening types. The assumption was that morning-type individuals are more likely to work when they are most efficient/productive compared with evening-type individuals, owing to society favouring early over late working hours. The analyses showed that morning relative to evening types earned significantly more, and that morningness benefited men in particular. En s'appuyant sur une nouvelle enquête d'emploi du temps pour le Danemark, nous avons catégorisé les individus en fonction de leur chronotype et étudié si les types du matin gagnent plus que les types du soir. L'hypothèse sous-jacente est que les types du matin ont une probabilité plus grande de travailler au moment où ils sont les plus efficaces/productifs par comparaison aux types du soir, puisque la société favorise les horaires de travail du matin par rapport à ceux du soir. Notre analyse a montré que les types du matin, par comparaison à ceux du soir, gagnent significativement plus, et le type du matin bénéficie particulièrement aux hommes. En plus, nous avons trouvé que le différentiel de salaire entre les deux chronotypes a diminué entre 2001 et 2008, peut-être à cause de la tendance vers des horaires de travail plus flexibles sur le marché du travail danois.
