This publication presents results from the survey of Involvement in Organised Sport and Physical Activity conducted in April 2010. It presents information on the number of persons aged 15 years and over who were involved in organised sport and physical activity over a 12 month period.


The 2010 survey of Involvement in Organised Sport and Physical Activity was conducted throughout Australia as part of the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Monthly Population Survey (MPS).

It provides details of people involved in organised sport and physical activity in playing and/or non-playing roles during the 12 months prior to interview. A description of the characteristics of each group is provided, as well as information about whether any payment was received and the amount of time spent on each type of involvement. Further information is provided about the types of non-playing roles undertaken, whether a course or qualification had been completed for these roles, and whether any involvement was with school or junior sport. Comparisons are presented using data from the 2001, 2004 and 2007 surveys.

Differences between data items highlighted in the Summary of Findings are statistically significant. See Technical Note (paragraphs 10 and 11) for further details.


As estimates have been rounded, discrepancies may occur between sums of the component items and totals.
