The socioeconomics of children's sports participation

No different than for attendance at out-of-home entertainment venues, the socioeconomics of a family affects the participation rate of their children in sports. The higher the family’s income and the higher the parents’ education, the greater the participation rate of their children.

A household’s type of residence also has an impact. Youth from families that own their home have a far greater participation in sports than families that rent. This is probably due to a correlation between type of residence and a family’s income and education that ties back to the first two graphs.
