This publication presents data on social wellbeing and participation in sport and physical recreation, compiled from the 2006 General Social Survey (GSS). The publication consists of a data cube and a report examining the relationship between social wellbeing indicators and participation in sport and physical recreation.


The General Social Survey (GSS) collected information about personal and household characteristics for people aged 18 and over resident in private dwellings, throughout non-remote areas of Australia, from March to July 2006.

Explanatory Notes on the 2006 GSS can be found in General Social Survey: Summary Results, Australia, 2006 (cat. no. 4159.0). These Explanatory Notes contain information on the scope of the survey, sample design, data collection, weighting and reliability of estimates. The publication also includes a Technical Note that provides information on data reliability.


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