DATA SUMMARY

The data in this searchable database includes information on NCAA member sports sponsorship, participation and personnel. There are four components to the Sport Sponsorship, Participation and Demographics Searchable Database:

  1. Sport Sponsorship Data: The sports sponsorship data tab provides information on the number of NCAA member institutions that sponsor each sport. This data is searchable by division, conference, sport, gender and year.

  2. Student-Athlete Data: The student-athlete tab provides information on the participation in sports at NCAA member institutions. This data is searchable by division, conference, sport, gender, ethnicity and year.

  3. Institutional Data: The institutional data tab provides information on head coaches, assistant coaches and administrators within the athletics departments at NCAA member institutions. This data is searchable by division, conference, position, gender, ethnicity and year.

  4. Conference Data: The conference data tab provides information on personnel at NCAA member conferences. This data is searchable by division, gender, ethnicity and year.

DATA SOURCE

The data in this search is self-reported annually by each NCAA member institution and conference.

RACE AND ETHNICITY CATEGORY DEFINITIONS

For the purposes of this report the following definitions were used for the race and ethnicity and residency status categories:


*NOTE: For the 1999-00 through 2005-06 data as well as the 2010-11 data, the residency status of student-athletes could fall in any of the race and ethnicity categories (for example, Black, White or Asian). The inclusion of Nonresident Alien among the ethnic categories may have been a point of confusion early in this longitudinal data collection effort for those individuals submitting the data. Therefore, fluctuations in the data for Nonresident Aliens may represent a combination of changes in the actual number of student-athletes in this category, fluctuations in the accuracy of the data the NCAA received from its member institutions, and now a change in the data collection.
