2.Profile of Athletes


The following table provides details on the sample of athletes represented in this report. The comparison shows that the sample is well aligned with the population on most parameters. The sample is weighted to restore it to population proportions in terms of age, type of sport, and season of sport. That is, where the number of athletes responding to the survey (e.g., in a certain age category or sport) was higher or lower than expected given the number in the full universe of currently carded athletes, we applied a weight to the cases so that across the entire sample, they accounted for the expected proportion of respondents.

Of interest in interpreting some of the demographic patterns cited in the report, there is a slightly higher concentration of summer team sport athletes, compared with winter team sport athletes That said, there is a much higher concentration of younger athletes and D cards in team sports (56 per cent) compared with the individual sports where only 33 per cent are D cards and 56% are SR, SR 1 and 2’s. Only 35 per cent of team sport athletes hold SR, SR1 or SR2 cards.


Men stay in their sport for longer than women do. While 42 per cent of the youngest athletes (under 20) are men, over 63 per cent of those 30 years of age or older are also men. British Columbia and Ontario have the highest concentration of young athletes (under 20).
