The latest data from the 2010/11 Taking Part survey provides reliable national estimates of adult and child engagement with sport, libraries, the arts, heritage and museums & galleries. This release builds on the first release of data from 2010/11 to look at a number of areas in depth and present measures that begin to consider broader definitions of participation in our sectors. The report also looks at some of the other measures in the survey that provide estimates of volunteering and charitable giving and civic engagement.
