Scope

SPORTS PRACTICE

The City Council of Barcelona regularly conducts studies to know the level of sports practice that the citizens and their characteristics carry out. Basically two surveys are made between the population, one addressed to the school-age population (compulsory education, between 5 and 16 years old) and another addressed to the adult population (after age 17). From these studies you can get a picture of the sports practice of the population, their tendencies and possible needs.
