The sampling of the research consists of 159 personnel working in various departments of the central organization of the Ministry of Justice. A questionnaire consisting of 64 questions iss used as data collection tool in the study. The data is analyzed with the SPSS 15.0 Statistical Package program and the frequency tables of the variables are given together with the percentage values. One way Variance Analysis (ANOVA) test is used to determine whether there is a significant difference between the variables. In addition, the frequency of participation of the participants in leisure activities is presented as cross tables according to their educational status. According to the results of the research; it is understood that individuals can not have sufficient leisure time, but at least they try to evaluate the leisure time they have in a more effective and planned manner as their educational status increases. In addition, it is observed that individuals with low education level are more likely to participate in leisure time activities on their own and also it is observed that as the level of education increased, the activities carried out together increase. Therefore, it is determined that the level of education is influential on the preferences of individuals to evaluate leisure time.
