    Yes and no, depending on the season. Due to the tip of the Earth on its axis the further you go from the equator the difference between the seasons becomes more intense, both as far as temperature and the length of the day. In the tropics the length of the day changes little between summer and winter; it holds almost constant. The further you go north or south the longer the days are in summer and the shorter they are in winter all the way to the extreme of the poles where you have months of daylight in the summer and months of darkness in the winter. So to answer your question the days are longer near the equator than in the north during the winter and shorter then the north during the summer.
