Supplementary notes

¹ Data until 2019/2020 refer to the Taking Part Survey. Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the 2020/2021 survey was not published resulting in a break in the survey time series. In October 2021, the DCMS launched the Participation Survey. Data for 2021/2022 refer to the period from October 2021 to March 2022. The source mentions that due to changes in the survey methodologies, it is not possible to make direct comparisons between the figures of the Taking Part Survey and the Participation Survey.
