Look at Leisure

A Look at Leisure Bulletins

Look at Leisure bulletins were published from 1981 – 2004 following the results of the Alberta Recreation Survey.

Each issue describes and interprets the results of one part of the survey. Given the survey has been conducted 7 times over a 23-year period, topics will be repeated but will include trend analysis.
