Americans still see the value of organized sports for youth, but many, including parents with school-aged children, say children are less likely to participate in them.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 33% of American Adults recognize that young people these days are less likely to participate in organized sports.
Twenty percent (20%) still think kids are more likely to participate in sports, while 36% think the level of participation is about the same. Another 11% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 1,000 American Adults was conducted on September 24-25, 2017 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
