Summary
The Washington Post conducted this survey to investigate the weekend leisure habits of Washington, DC residents. General questions probed the respondents' level of satisfaction with the way they spent their weekends, whether they had too little or too much to do and wished they had done more or less, whether they were enjoying themselves more on weekends now than five years ago, and whether there were enough things to do on weekends in the Washington area. Specifically, respondents were asked to rate the weekend previous to the interview on a scale of 1 to 10, list what they did on that particular weekend, state the number of hours spent watching television over the weekend, and indicate the day of the week by which their weekend plans were set. Those surveyed were also asked about their source of information for things happening on the weekend, whether they had cut back on the amount of money spent on weekend activities over the past year or two, and whether there were certain parts of the greater Washington area they had stopped going to for fear of crime. Other subjects addressed included the new stadium for the Baltimore Orioles, the respondent's preference for the location of a new stadium for the Washington Redskins, credit card debt, and personal spending patterns. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, education, marital status, number of children living at home, employment status, unemployment among household members, Hispanic origin, household income, and sex
