Participation of Asian Population Groups – Research Report

The Asian population in New Zealand is growing rapidly. However, research shows that people of Asian ethnicities are generally less active than those of non-Asian ethnicities.

To address this challenge, sports organisations and active recreation providers need to better understand and respond to the specific needs of the diverse and quickly changing Asian community.

Our recently completed research report “Participation of Asian Population Groups” explores the experiences of the Asian population when participating in physical activities in New Zealand and the perceptions, barriers and motivations related to this participation.
