I. Objectives
  • Man has always needed and thrived on the warmth
    of personal connection. Throughout the
  • evolution of mankind, this desire for connection,
    as reflected in emotional and real ties to
  • home, family and friends, has set human beings
    apart from all other organisms. Personal
  • connection, homing or most commonly known today
    as hiving has driven man to excel
  • and prosper over all other species in
    communication, teamwork and problem-solving.
  • People are driven to hive to share quality
    experiences with the people one cares most
  • about, whether it is spending time at home doing
    nothing, going out to a neighborhood
  • restaurant, coffee shop or ice cream parlor,
    attending a ticketed event outside the home or
  • going on vacation together. Depending on the
    nature of a given relationship, hiving can be
  • spontaneous or require careful planning to get
    together with those living across town, the
  • country or the continent.
  • Technology plays a dual role in both facilitating
    and impeding our ability to hive by allowing
  • us to be able to communicate with anyone whenever
    and where ever we/they are, but also
  • luring us to be always tuned in and beckoning us
    to work and play faster and accomplish
  • more in any given day.
  • Crunched for time and forced to be higher-tech,
    Americans crave hiving time now more

I. Objectives
  • General Growth Properties, Inc.s
    has
  • commissioned this study to determine how and
    where
  • American consumers hive and to profile those who
  • participate in the most popular leisure
    activities.
  • The following report summarizes the findings of
    Todays
  • American Leisure How Where We Hive.

II. Methodology
  • A nationally representative sample of 1143 online
    adults 18 was conducted January 8
  • 11, 2008. Approximately one-half (561) of
    qualified respondents are women and one-half
  • (580) are men.
  • The following special notations were applied in
    the data tables.
  • Bolded numbers indicate a statistically
    significant difference between groups at a 90
    confidence level or above, and
  • ?s indicate a dominant trend in the data across
    groups, which may or may not be supported by
    statistical significance relative to other groups.

Detailed Findingsa. American Home Leisure
Activities Hiving At Home
  • 1. Most Popular Home Leisure Activities
  • Prediction is that the majority of North
    American homes will be wired with a centralized
    smart home computer system that will be accessed
    by computers and laptops at home and away from
    home on PDAs and cell phones by 2020. All
    household activities, including
    television-watching, will be done on or through
    the web and accessed through personal household
    computer systems. Americans will need to
    multi-task to keep up with faster and smarter
    technology and globalization, such that watching
    television directly through a TV box with a tuner
    will become a thing of the past. In fact, a
    recent study of the European market shows that
    16-24 year old Europeans already prefer going
    online to watch TV (82 regularly online watching
    TV versus 77 regularly watching the box).
  •  
  • Contrary to concerns and dark predictions of
    people being left in the dust in a mass
    conversion to an online lifestyle, Americans
    still love to watch an old-fashioned television
    at home. Most Americans (87) watch TV offline
    for leisure at home. This study shows that the
    U.S. is not even close to Europe, as though
    surfing the internet is currently the second-most
    popular at-home leisure activity at 69, only 14
    of Americans currently watch TV online (31 of
    people age 18-34).
  • Americans seem to gravitate toward the
    traditional in their at-home leisure selections,
    in that playing or listening to music (64),
    reading a book (60), watching a movie at home
    (59) and cooking or baking (54) are still
    enjoyed by over half of Americans.

Detailed Findingsb. American Away From Home
Leisure Activities -- Hiving Away From Home
  • 4. Bowling To Spend Time With Family Or Friends
  • The bowling industry is a 4B industry in the
    United States. Well over 50M Americans bowl at
    least once
  • every year, with about 10 million classifying
    themselves as frequent bowlers, and about 4
    million
  • participating in league play. This
    represents an increase of 3.5 in penetration
    over the prior year, with
  • young adults (ages 18-24) and families
    showing the greatest growth. As of late 2006,
    there were 5,580
  • sanctioned ten-pin bowling centers throughout
    the country, with 114,866 lanes, and about 143
    duckpin and
  • candlepin centers operating with
    approximately 2,680 lanes.
  • Bowlers describe the appeal of the sport as a
    fun activity to be shared with family and
    friends of all age
  • groups. And, most centers report
    significant increases in patronage in recent
    years as more people seek
  • reasonably-priced and family-oriented
    recreational activities close to home. Changes
    in the industry have
  • also likely increased consumer appeal, as
    older and smaller centers closed and have been
    replaced by new,
  • larger, and many times multi-entertainment-ori
    ented facilities.
  • About one in six consumers (15) in this study
    cite having bowled with family or friends to
    spend time together at least once in the past
    month, which is consistent with the industry
    statistics above. This survey also finds adults
    with children (i.e., families) as the biggest
    bowlers (10 of total population, two-thirds of
    all bowlers).
  • Families go bowling about once a month, but among
    regular bowling households, the average is twice
    a month. The very young (18-34), particularly
    men, and higher income earners bowl the most
    frequently at just over the once a month average.
