The Scottish Household Survey for 2009 has just been published by National Statistics. This includes a survey of sports participation in Scotland.
The sports participation statistics start on page 149 of the report, and show that the most popular sport is “walking for recreational purposes”, with 54% of the Scottish population undertaking this in the four weeks prior to the survey. The next most popular sports were swimming (18%) and keep fit/aerobics (12%).
The Scottish Household Survey also gives information about sports participation broken down by age, gender, and level of deprivation. Read more about the Scottish Household Survey on the UWS Government Publications Blog.
