Measuring an Olympic and Paralympic Effect on Sport Participation


An Olympic and Paralympic effect on sport participation has never been robustly measured. 1- Is it possible to find out whether Olympic and Paralympic Games have caused sport participation changes? 2- Can national surveys tell us if sport participation changes are due to the Games? 3- Can thinking about what might have happened without the Games help us to find out if there has been a Games effect on participation?
