Title: Leisure : a suburban Winnipeg study
Authors: Robinson, Barrie William
Issue Date: 1968
Abstract: The general purpose of this study was to examine the leisure patterns of suburban adults living in Metropolitan Winnipeg. More specifically, the study was designed to meet three main objectives: a) to ascertain the definitions of leisure held by a selected sample of residents living in the suburbs of Southdale, Kings Park, and Fort Richmond; b) to ascertain the leisure complex of these residents, that is, the number and type of leisure activities engaged in, and the meanings assigned to specific activities; and c) to relate these leisure complexes to certain sociological variables which may best be categorized as social and occupational attributes. To a large extent, this was a replication study, as the selection of variables for use in this study was guided by past research. It was hoped that in meeting the objectives of this study, a contribution could be made to the body of knowledge surrounding the subject of leisure... Thus, in conclusion, it appears that the leisure patterns of suburban adults, at least insofar as the quantity of the patterns is concerned, are influenced mainly by family stage, which overrides the influence of the other variables considered in this study. Of course, this statement is limited at present to similar types of suburbs (i.e. middle and upper middle class suburbs). Future research is required to substantiate these findings.
