Study of a random sample of families in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, shows that the uses of leisure are conditioned by social class and to some extent by age and sex. The upper middle class selects libraries, home diversions, and lecture-study groups more often than other classes, whereas the two lowest classes use parks and playgrounds, community chest agencies, church, museums, and commercial entertainment relatively more often.
