More school, more play
May 28, 2008
People with higher levels of education were more likely to participate in sports and exercise in recent years.
Among people aged 25 years and older, those with a bachelor's degree or higher were more than twice as likely to participate in sports and exercise activities on an average day during the 2003-06 period as those with a high school diploma or less.
