COUNTRY OF BIRTH

In 2012, 56% of children who were born in non-main English-speaking countries did not participate in sport or dancing.

In 2012, children from couple families where both parents were born in main English-speaking countries had a similar non-participation rate (26%) as those whose parents were born in Australia (25%). This rate was significantly lower compared with children with parents born in non-main English-speaking countries and single parent families.
