Explore the data

We have developed an online data analysis tool that allows users to produce bespoke tables and explore the survey. 

The study looks at participation in the following activities:

  • arts
  • museums and galleries
  • archives
  • libraries
  • heritage
  • sport

It includes information on frequency of participation, reasons for participating, barriers to participation and attitudes to the sectors.

Methods 

The Taking Part survey is a continuous face to face household survey of adults aged 16 and over and children aged 5 to 15 years old in England. It has run since 2005 and interviews around 10, 000 people a year.
