Source: Department for Culture, Media and Sport (UK)
From Key Findings:
85.6 per cent of adults intend to follow the London 2012 Olympic or Paralympic Games; with 24.4 per cent of adults actively getting involved in the Games.
Almost two thirds (62.9%) of adults are slightly or strongly supportive of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, a significant decrease from 66.3 per cent in 2010/11 and 71.0 per cent in 2005/06.
A significantly higher proportion of BME participants compared to participants with a white background, said they were motivated to do more sport, voluntary work or cultural activities as a result of the UK winning the bid to host the 2012 Olympics.
