Results from survey data collected in 2017 on participation in play, active recreation and sport.

This is the fourth time Sport NZ has carried out a nationwide participation survey. However, it is the first time we have surveyed young people and adults together.

The results in these reports are based on data collected through the Active NZ survey between 5 January 2017 and 4 January 2018 from 6,004 young people (aged 5-17) and 27,038 adults (aged 18+).

Its findings provide important insights into participation in play, active recreation and sport in New Zealand, explored through the lenses of age, gender, ethnicity and deprivation.
