According to Project: Time Off's (P:TO) latest report titled State of American Vacation 2017, Americans took an average of 16.8 days leave in 2016, up from 16.2 days in 2015.

The results, based on survey of 7,331 US employees conducted by GfK and analysis completed by Oxford Economics, also revealed that 54 percent of workers ended 2016 with unused annual leave, a one percent decrease from 2015.

Katie Denis, senior director, P:TO, said, "Our workforce still has a long way to go to rewire its thinking that hours worked and busyness are equivalent to productivity.

[…] The increase in vacation usage is a positive indicator for American work culture."
