2009 Children's Participation in Culture and Leisure Activities, Australia 4901.0

This survey is the fourth on the topic of children's participation in culture and leisure activities, the previous surveys being conducted in April of 2000, 2003 and 2006. Information was collected from any responsible adult in the household who was asked to respond on behalf of the children in the household.

As with previous iterations, the 2009 survey collected information on children's participation in selected organised cultural activities and organised sports outside of school hours during the 12 months prior to interview, and on participation in selected leisure activities (such as skateboarding or rollerblading, and watching television, videos or DVDs) outside of school hours during the most recent two school weeks prior to interview.

The survey also collected data on the use of the Internet and mobile phones. Details were collected on the characteristics of children who participated and on the frequency and duration of their involvement in some activities.
