“This article looks at the active leisure activities of Canadians aged 20 and over. Time-use diaries permit analysis of the type and length of activities done on a given day. Using data from the 1992 and 2005 General Social Surveys (GSS), we will look at trends in active leisure participation rates from 1992 to 2005. We will also examine which groups are more likely to participate in active leisure in 2005.”
