Typology of Leisure of Rural People.
Tapilina, Vera Sergeevna
Utilizing data from a 1972 sociological survey of rural inhabitants working in the public economy of the province of Novosibirsk, this study examined leisure as an element of the residents' life style. Rural residents with common leisure behaviors were identified through the classification of the behavior's function and quality. Leisure functions were classified as: recreation--walks in the woods, fishing, hunting, hiking; spiritual consumption--reading, concerts, seeing films; and creative activity--gardening, sewing, knitting, participation in amateur theatrical societies. Each behavior was arranged by leisure diversity (number of functions performed). "Quality" of leisure (degree to which urban patterns had been assimilated) was classified as: weakly urbanized--traditional and time-honoured rural leisure behaviors; middle-urbanized--oriented equally to time-honoured and relatively new leisure behaviors; and urbanized--relatively new forms of leisure. Sociodemographic data of the population were also obtained--sex, age, education, skills, office, income, and the community's socioeconomic development (degree of urbanization and industrialization). Findings included: men were typical representatives of urbanized leisure and women of weakly urbanized leisure; over half of the holders of weakly urbanized leisure were in pre-retired and retired age; holders of mid-urbanized leisure were from 30 to 50 years of age; and holders of urbanized leisure were slightly younger and more educated.
