Abstract

The participation by Canadian teens and young adults in noisy leisure activities was quantified in terms of participation rates, hours per activity, and frequency of participation as well as the number of noisy activities in which youth participate. Three hundred and forty-six students completed a questionnaire during the summer months of July and August. The respondents were students from a high school, a community college, and a university. For each activity, respondents were asked if they participated in the activity over the past seven days and, if so, the total duration of their participation. Most students reported participating in at least one noisy leisure activity during the week. The mean total duration of participation in noisy activities was 20.7 hours.
