The amount of free time available to a person depended on the type of household to which they belonged. Family and household types are classified into categories as detailed in the Glossary published in the ABS (2008h) Time Use Survey: User Guide, 2006 (cat. no. 4150.0).

Dependent children (all persons aged 15 years and under or aged 15 to 24 years and in full-time study with a parent living in the same household) spent the most time (28 minutes a day) on sport and outdoor activities. This was followed by people in a couple family with no children (24 minutes). Parents with dependent children spent the least amount of time on sport and outdoor activities (16 minutes).
