2003 Participation State-by-State Index

'Sports Participation in 2003: State-by-State' projects sports participation on a state-by-state basis for 33 sports. It provides data on total participation, frequency of participation and total participation days. This data is used to create the NSGA State-by-State Index.

On the Index, the national average for each sport equals 100. The index is created by dividing a state's percentage of participants in a particular activity by its percentage of the U.S. population. For example, if Florida has 13.2% of the total participants in salt water fishing and 5.4% of the U.S. population. This yields an index of 243, indication Floridians are more than twice as likely (2.43 times, to be exact) to particpate in salt water fishing as the national average.

'Sports Participation in 2003: State-by-State' is based on a sampling of 20,000 U.S. households. Only those sports which project at least seven million participants nationally are included in this study.
