A first study of the Leisure Interests Checklist for Teenagers (LIC-T) is reported based on a large sample of male (N = 1, 204) and female (N = 862) high school students. The LIC-T contains 74 items which yield six factor scales (with similarities to the prior adult version), a total score, and two rationally-derived scales condensed from the adult version. All subscales disclosed acceptable reliabilities (Alpha coefficients), and showed contrasts between the sexes which paralleled previous differences found between college men and women. In a pilot application, a small comparison group of known teenage mothers proved more interested in Feminine and lower in Social recreations, but were otherwise comparable to the main sample of high school females.
