These products provide data on persons aged 15 years and over who participated in sport and physical recreation activities as players, competitors or persons who physically undertook an activity.

The data includes: demographic and labour force characteristics of sport and physical activity participants, the participation rate, type of participation, number of activities, regularity of participation and facilities used. A detailed list of data items is available on the downloads tab.

The microdata enables users to tabulate, manipulate and analyse data. Steps to confidentialise the dataset are taken to ensure the integrity of data and maintain confidentiality of respondents. This includes removing any information that might uniquely identify an individual, reducing the level of detail for some items and collapsing some categories.
