OVERVIEW:
This column bar graph depicts the percentage of men in a certain nation who choose to either watch certain sports or play them, namely, football, rugby, basketball, badminton, fishing, and horse riding. Immediately, it can be noted that of the six sports more men like to be observers than participants with the exception of fishing.
ANALYSES
Looking at each of these sports in more detail, half of all men in this country prefer to be active fishermen while just over a tenth choose to be the audience. Inversely, football is watched by nearly half of all men, while a tenth prefers playing on the pitch. Similarly, to football, horse riding shows a relatively comparable proportion of viewers and doers, about 47% and 19% respectively. In regards to basketball, the proportion of viewers and players is more balanced, 37.5% to 25% respectively. Finally, rugby and badminton show similar trends of preference with viewers at 30% and participants at roughly 20%.
SUMMARY
In summary, although men more commonly prefer to be the audience in these sports, with the exception of fishing, the proportion of participants to viewers varies significantly depending on the sport.
