INTRODUCTION

The ABS (2012f) publication Participation in Sport and Physical Recreation, Australia, 2011-12 (cat. no. 4177.0) contains information about people aged 15 years and over who participated in sport and physical recreation activities as players or competitors. People who were involved in non-playing roles, such as coaches, umpires or club officials were excluded from the data. As well as information about participation, information about the types of facilities people used for sport and physical recreation was also collected.

Information about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people's access to sporting and other community facilities was collected in the ABS (2008g) National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey, 2008 (cat. no. 4714.0). The survey was conducted between August 2008 and April 2009 and collected information from approximately 13,300 Indigenous Australians living in private dwellings in remote and non-remote areas, including discrete communities.
