Using qualitative structured interviews in leisure research: illustrations from one case study



Using qualitative structured interviews in leisure research: illustrations from one case study



Journal of Leisure Research 20(4): 305-323



A qualitative research approach becomes an avenue for investigating leisure when leisure is operationalized as a subjective phenomenon. The qualitative structured interview technique enables the description of the role of leisure in the lives of subjects to be expressed in their own words and from their own perspective. The paper describes this technique and highlights its use in one illustrative case study carried out in the USA.
