Description

PSPACT reports whether the respondent participated in any sports activity, such as softball, basketball, golf, skiing, or tennis, during the last 12 months.

This variable is part of the Public Arts Supplement.

PSPACT is a Module C variable in the May 2008 sample and a Module D variable in the July 2012 and July 2017 samples. For more information on cores, modules, and weighting Public Arts variables, please see Weighting the IPUMS CPS Public Arts Supplement.

Comparability

In 2002 and 2008, the questionnaire asks whether the respondent participated in any sports activity, such as softball, basketball, golf, skiing, or tennis. In 2012 and 2017, the questionnaire asks whether the respondent has exercised or participated in any sports activities. While unavailable for 2012 and 2017, another variable that might be useful is PEXER which reports if the respondent has exercised in the last year.

Supplement universes vary across years. The May 2008, July 2012, and July 2017 Public Arts Supplement has substantial differences in structure compared to other months. The May 2008, July 2012, and July 2017 surveys are divided into core and module sections. Which respondents and which variables are included in which core and module varies across years. For more information on Public Arts survey designs and implications for comparability and weighting, please see the Public Arts Supplement sample notes and Weighting the IPUMS CPS Public Arts Supplement.
