Leisure participation and time-use surveys: The Netherlands.

This chapter discusses developments in obligatory time and free time in the Netherlands based on data from the 1975, 1990 and 2000 Time-budget Surveys.

Trends in time spent on various leisure activities are also discussed, as well as holiday patterns and the growth of the use of new media (computers, internet, and commercial television) as a leisure activity. With less free time and more financial resources to spend on leisure, there is an overall shift from low-cost and time-intensive activities to much more consumption-intensive forms of leisure.
