The results are presented of a secondary analysis of a longitudinal panel study that was begun in 1949 in Wisconsin, USA. This research, based on a sample of 267 Euro-American men and women, examined gender differences in: (1) the frequency of individuals' involvement in discretionary or free time activities in young and middle adulthood, (2) changes in activity involvement between young and middle adulthood, and (3) predictors of activity involvement in young and middle adulthood.
