Sažetak
The quality of life is determined with objective factors and also with subjective perception of factors which influence human life. Leisure activities play a very important role in life satisfaction because they provide opportunities to meet life values and needs. Through participation in leisure activities people build social relationships, feel positive emotions, acquire additional skills and knowledge, and therefore improve their quality of life. In this report we will explore how leisure activities improve general life satisfaction. We will try to distinguish among different types of leisure activities and find those which contribute more to life satisfaction. Particularly, we will explore which leisure activities contribute to life satisfaction of women and men and people in various age groups. Our study is based on data from representative sample of Croatian citizens (N=4000), who estimated general life satisfaction and participation in various leisure activities. First, we will describe the life satisfaction of various groups of people who differ by gender, age and social status. Afterward, we will identify important leisure activities which determine life satisfaction across age and gender groups. Overall, our results show that engagement in leisure activities contributes to life satisfaction, while the pattern of important leisure activities somewhat varies across different age and gender groups.
