Leisure participation and time-use surveys: Finland.

The first section of this chapter presents an overview of the history of leisure and time-use surveys in Finland. Using data from these surveys (conducted during 1979-2000), the second section describes trends in: daily time-use patterns; use of communication technologies at home; reading; cultural and other social attendance; sports and outdoor recreation; dancing and eating out; and game activities. It is shown that many changes in Finnish use of leisure time parallel international trends. For example, use of electronic media, especially television viewing, is on the increase. Changes in cultural life that began in the 1980s appeared to have deepened in the 1990s. The most evident change is probably the transition from involvement with national and literary culture towards international and audio-visual and electronic media and, most recently, the internet.
