Abstract

Information from an Australian Bureau of Statistics survey of participation in sports and physical recreation was released recently in Participation in Sports and Physical Recreation, Australia, 2005–06 (cat. no. 4177.0). The survey found that almost two-thirds (66%) of people aged 15 years and over participated in sports or recreational physical activities at least once in the previous 12 months. Under a third (29%) participated on a regular basis of twice a week or more. More females (2.6 million or 32%) than males (2.1 million or 27%) reported participating at least twice weekly.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
