The table represents various types of activities that people of all ages do in their leisure time in Someland. It can be clearly seen that the way people choose to spend their free time depends on their age.

According to the figures, everyone spends a great part of their leisure time watching TV and videos. Teenagers and retired people do this activity for approximately 1,200 hours per year, which is twice as much as adults. Not only youngsters, but also people in their thirties, Socialise with others for 500 hours per year. However, this number drops dramatically as people age. 

Teenagers spend about 450 hours playing sports or doing group exercise. This tendency is going down as they are getting older until they entirely stop doing this activity. When they turn 60. Individual exercise is preferred by those in their 30s and 40s, who spend 200 hours per year on this activity. By contrast, they spend only 25 hours in the cinema, which is less than the other age groups.
