This study targets the leisure repertoire and differences between gender and age-groups among older people. Data was collected from a population-based survey among the oldest-old in northern Sweden as well as from two senior citizens’ organizations in northern Sweden. In total 286 older people between 65 and 98 voluntary participated. Leisure repertoire was described by using Rasch analysis on the data from the MNPS interest check list. The results show that the most likely to find on older peoples repertoire was social activities, cultural activities and watch TV. Least likely, older people describe ballgames and equipment sports as a part of their repertoire. Men and women had significant different repertoire, which could be related to traditional gender issues. Differences were also found related to age.
