Research Strategy

To provide seven hobbies of men aged 30-36 years old in the US, we searched through data/studies from proxies with wider age range or generational studies based on Millennials since that generation includes people aged 30 to 36. We used a dated source (from 2013) due to the lack of more recent information that provides specific measures of favorite leisure activities for Millennial by gender, so we could provide data specific to Millennial men free-time activities. We were not able to find specific studies, surveys, or articles from trusted media sites that discuss the hobbies of men aged 30-36 years old in the US. We began our search for the hobbies of men aged 30-36 years old in the US by consulting articles and press releases from media sites that often discuss trends or interests based on demographics. Our thinking was to find articles related published by experts talking about young adults' (30-36) hobbies since these sites typically publish that kind of content. Although we found relevant articles about the leisure time of Millennial men, we found nothing similar specific to men between 30 and 36. We then changed tactics and searched through released reports about the hobbies of men aged 30-36 years old in the US. However, this provided no insights because although we found important insights about Millennials' leisure activities or preferred activities by Millennial men. We were not able to find information specifically for men aged 30 to 36 years old. Finally, we searched for the hobbies of men aged 30-36 years old in the US in articles by experts in published in databases of studies and surveys.
