Changes in leisure behavior after retirement were examined using present and retrospective reports of participation. Seventy-five retirees responded to a three part questionnaire. Analysis revealed considerable continuity in leisure behavior from before to after retirement with overall low frequency of participation. Changes occurring in activities and patterns were interrelated. Significant changes were related to health, population, transportation, income, and life satisfaction. Implications for pre-retirement planning are discussed.
