The present study aimed to examine how young people in Hamadan City spend their leisure time with an emphasis on their personal values and attitudes and to investigate its relationship with watching TV, watching satellite channels, using computer, using the Internet, using library and doing sports. The research population consisted of the young population in Hamadan Province. The sample size was computed using Cochran’s formula. The results showed that over 60 percent of the participants considered personal values and attitudes as an important factor in how people spend their leisure time. However, there was only 14 percent congruity between the existing leisure activities and personal values. The results of ANOVA revealed the strongest correlation of personal values and attitudes with doing leisure time sports.
