Morishita, T., Ryutsukagaku University, Japan
 
This study was undertaken to explore 'What life-style do the workers have?' The investigation was administrated from November, 1998 through March, 2001. It consists of questionnaires of both Life-style's items (27)* and Yutori's items (22 - Yutori literally means "room"). The Life-style was classified into 3 kinds (work, leisure and social activity). The Life-style was analyzed about activity for leisure in terms of sports and hobbies. Next, the Yutori Scale was classified into 4 types. The relation between Life-style and Yutori was also examined. * Life-style items were made by NIP ASSOCIATES (1998, Japan)
