Yearly leisure hours by Canadians based on age groups

Sample Answer:
The table reveals data on the duration of yearly leisure activities by Canadians based on their age groups. As is obvious from the illustration, watching TV is the most popular free time activity among Canadians while young people take parts in sports and exercise more than older people do.

In details, a Canadian teenager spends 1200 hours watching TV programmes in a year which is 100 hours more than that of people over 70 years old and three times than that of people in their thirties. Hours spend watching TV by teens and older people are higher than that of other age groups. Individual exercise is more popular among Canadians between 30 and 50 years as they spend 200 hours in a year, while group exercise and sports are more preferred by younger people. People over 60 do not take part in sports and groups exercise. Socialising with more people is commonly seen among younger people while adults like to have fewer people to socialise. Cinema seems like the least preferred activity as roughly 75 hours on an average is spend on this activity by all age groups.
