Athletic Involvement Study Released

Last week NAHDAP released a new study in its archive. The Athletic Involvement Study by Dr. Kathleen Miller was conducted in 2006 with 795 university students from a college in the Northeast United States. One purpose of the study was to investigate the experiences and attitudes of students involved in high school and college athletics. Approximately 75% of the students reported some degree of participation in sports. Another purpose was to see how a student's participation in sports affected certain health risk behaviors such as substance abuse, sexual interaction, and dangerous activities. 

This study is public and accessible to all. It is also available for online analysis through ICPSR's SDA system.
