Seniors generally have more leisure time than those in younger age groups. In 1992, people aged 65 and over had an average of 7.7 hours of free time each day or two hours more than the age 15 to 64 demographic.

Seniors devote an average of almost an hour and a half a day to active leisure pursuits such as sports, socializing, hobbies and driving for pleasure. Seniors also spend a significant amount of their leisure time travelling.
