Leisure patterns among retired workers: Spillover or compensatory trends?

Yael Kremer, Itzhak Harpaz

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Leisure behavior patterns after retirement were compared retrospectively with those of the preretirement period. The data, which related to former industrial and service workers in Israel, were examined within the context of the spillover and compensatory hypotheses, with retirement representing a non work sphere. Findings revealed a spillover effect, characterized by a high degree of passive, solitary leisure behavior both before and after retirement.
