This statistic shows the results of a representative survey of the British Public in relation to the English Premier League, presenting the gender distribution of British Adults that watch Premier League football matches, by frequency and NRS social grade.
The NRS social grades are a system of demographic classification used in the United Kingdom. The grades are grouped here into ABC1 and C2DE; these are taken to equate to middle class and working class, respectively.
