Abstract

The year 2012 sees the Olympics and Paralympics come to the UK. At Wave 2 we asked about participation in sports and the frequency with which sporting activities are undertaken. One of the strengths of a longitudinal study such as Understanding Society is that individual-level change in behaviours can be measured with this second wave used as a benchmark of sporting activity in 2010-2011.
