CHILDREN'S PARTICIPATION IN CULTURAL AND LEISURE ACTIVITIES 2003

In April 2003, the Australian Bureau of Statistics conducted a national survey to gather information on various cultural and leisure activities undertaken by children aged 5-14 years. The survey collected data on children's participation in four selected organised cultural activities (playing a musical instrument, singing, dancing and drama); organised sport; six leisure activities (TV and video watching, reading for pleasure, playing electronic or computer games, bike riding, art and craft activities, and skateboarding or rollerblading); and computer and Internet usage. Results were published in Children's Participation in Cultural and Leisure Activities, Australia, April 2003
