The Leisure-Time Activity of Citizens
Sedova, N. N.
Russian Education and Society, v53 n5 p37-60 May 2011
Survey data show that Russians relegate free time and leisure activity to secondary status compared to work, and free time faces the threat of becoming devalued and losing its importance as a life value. At the same time, in the structure of Russians' leisure activities there is an ongoing tendency for leisure to become simpler, for active types of leisure to be reduced. This tendency is strengthened by the economic crisis, when spending on leisure activity is the first to be cut back in family budgets. (Contains 6 figures, 1 footnote and 5 notes.)
