The 2005-06 MPHS also included questions about the reasons for participating or not participating in sport or physical recreation. Common responses for not participating included being too busy or lack of time; age or health related reasons; and 'not interested'. Motives broadly included health reasons and enjoyment. The information from this topic is summarised in ABS (2007d) Participation in Sport and Physical Recreation, Australia, 2005-06 (cat. no. 4177.0). This topic was not included in the 2009-10 survey.

A separate report, Motivators and Constraints to Participation in Sports and Physical Recreation (ABS 2007c) has also been prepared by the ABS for the Committee of Australian Sport and Recreation Officials.
