How Do Arizonans Spend their Personal Time? AZ Views, Volume 1, Issue 1
Morrison Institute for Public Policy, Arizona State University
When not sleeping, working, or tending to other duties, Arizonans keep busy, spending personal time on a wide array of different activities, from high culture to casual pastime. Reported data create a picture of a busy, active population sharing a lot of interests, particularly outdoor activities, while also containing discernible subgroups devoted to particular pursuits. Many residents seem intent upon spending their spare time improving themselves and their personal lives: when asked which activities they most value, Arizonans' top choices were strengthening family relationships, exercise and staying healthy, sharpening intellectual pursuits, and having a spiritual life. [Data reported come from the Arizona Indicators Panel, a statewide representative sample of Arizonans. Panel members have agreed to be surveyed online several times a year across multiple topic areas to permit depth and exploration of topics with the same sample group and solve some of the problems experienced in random sample telephone surveys. Reported results come from two rounds of panel questions and were collected in May and July 2008. The summarized results contain the statistically significant differences on selected demographic characteristics of pane participants that can be found at the end of the report. Arizona Indicators is a partnership of Arizona State University, The Arizona Republic, Arizona Community Foundation, Valley of the Sun United Way, and Arizona Department of Commerce.]
