Abstract

Matching methods are used to conduct a causal analysis of the impact of participation in sporting activities while at university on subsequent earnings once graduated and in employment. The analysis employs an innovative longitudinal dataset, Futuretrack, which follows UK students from upper secondary education through higher education and on to the labour market. The results indicate a positive causal effect of sports participation on earnings of around 5 per cent.
