Figure 5 tabulates median expenditures against the social status of the HOH. The patterns illustrated in Figure 5 appear to support the assertion that income is a greater determinant of spending on spectating than participation. With the exception of some outliers (i.e. unskilled, own account and farmers), there appears to be a downward trend in median spending from ‘higher’ social status groups (i.e. employers and managers) to the ‘lower’ social status groups (i.e. semi-skilled). This pattern is not as evident in the sport participation numbers.
