We explore patterns of leisure time satisfaction among Chilean adults using innovative methods. Through latent class analysis, we identified four different satisfaction patterns. Using multinomial logistic regression, we examined the sociodemographic factors that determine the probability of belonging to one or another of these patterns. The results showed that age was the main factor defining this probability, with those over 56 years of age as more likely to belong to the highest satisfaction class. This finding is consistent with empirical data on objective time availability. Regarding income, individuals in Quintile 4 were less likely to be in the highest satisfaction group. We did not observe differences when comparing men and women. However, we observed differences when evaluating the intersection between sex and the conditions of living with a partner and having children aged 0–4 years. Our findings explore patterns of parenthood in heterosexual couples in Chile and suggest that women in such conditions are less likely to belong to the highest satisfaction class.
