The Irish Social Science Data Archive (ISSDA) is delighted to announce that Student Activity and Sports Study Ireland (SASSI) data from 2014-2015 are now available in SPSS format.
The SASSI research was commissioned by Student Sport Ireland (SSI) to investigate sport and physical activity participation, preferences and provision in third-level colleges on the island of Ireland.
Colleges have invested significantly in sports provision over the past 20 years and the sector has considerable potential to impact on physical activity and health at an institutional and wider community level.
However, there was a lack of information available about the participation levels of students as they progress through college and the factors within the college environment which impact on participation.
