ERASS 2010

The Exercise, Recreation and Sport Survey (ERASS) was a joint initiative of the Australian Sports Commission and State and Territory Departments of Sport and Recreation, conducted on an annual basis between 2001 and 2010.

The first survey was conducted in 2001.  This publication presents results from the tenth annual ERASS data collection, which was conducted in 2010.


Following the initial release of the ERASS Annual Report 2010, an error was found that has a minor impact on the data provided in this report. The report published incorrect club-based participation data for martial arts on pages 4 and 42 of the 2010 report. This error has now been corrected and the revised data is provided in this updated publication.
