PAGE 2B-CHILLICOTHE, MISSOURI-44401 CHILUCOTHE CONSTITUTION-TRIBUNE, WEDNESDAY, JULY 2, 1980 The Gallup Youth Survey Second Audit of Teen Sports Participation Girl Scout News By GEORGE GALLUP PRINCETON, N.J. - Any teen-ager who hasn't swung at a baseball in the past year is in a real minority, and the teen who hasn't been swimming lately is a downright rarity, according to the latest Gallup Youth Survey. We found that swimming and baseball top a list of 14 selected sports in which teens participate, and that about three out of every four teens had engaged in those two sports in the 12 months prior to our interview 1 !. Basketball is a close third in popularity, followed by bowling. We learned that these four sports and three others -roller skating, tennis and fishing -- were enjoyed by a majority of teens during the survey period. It should be noted that ours is only a partial list of sports, of course, and it represents only a sampling of many popular activities. There are some interesting d i f f e r e n c e s among various teen subgroups in our sports survey. For example, while most of the 1-1 sports are participated in by more boys than girls, there are exceptions. Girls apparently top boys in enthusiasm for tennis, h o r s e b a c k r i d i n g , r o l l e r skating and ice skating. Similarly, while 78 percent of the girls said they had gone swimming within the past year, the comparable figure for boys was 71 percent. In some sports, the difference between sexes was overwhelming. H u n t i n g was listed by 38 percent of the boys, but by only nine percent of the girls. Fishing, likewise, There were some interesting regional differences, as well. It should be obvious that snow skiing is practiced more often in the Northeast and far West, but we found that handball also enjoys far more popularity among teens in those two areas t h a n e l s e w h e r e . Racquetball and roller skating seem to be enjoyed by more teens in the West, while hunting and fishing are more apt to be enjoyed in the Midwest and South. The question asked of teens in the survey waa: "Which of the following sports and activities have you, yourself, participated in within the past 12 months?" Today's findings are based on telephone interviews with a representative national cross- section of 1,012 teen-agers, ages 13 to 18, conducted in October, 1979.

We found a comparatively low participation level among non-white teens. Handball was the only one of our 14 sports in which a significantly larger proportion of nonwhites than whites engaged. For several other sports -baseball, basketball, roller skating and racquetball -white and non-white participation was about the same. Teens whose parents attended college, we learned, are considerably more likely to be sports-oriented than are their classmates whose parents did not attend college.
