Information is also produced on the ratio between work and leisure, social relationships and importance attached to different spheres of life. The Leisure Survey has been conducted in 1977, 1981, 1991, 2002 and 2017. In 2017, the data for the Leisure Survey were collected with self-filled web and paper questionnaires and face-to-face interviews.
