A Study on the Efficiency of the Sports Area in the City of Erzurum

Metin Demir and Yahya Bulut

In our days, people choose sports not only as an activity to enjoy and spend their free time but also as a job or occupation to survive their lives. Investment on these areas is of a huge amount. In industrialised nations, contributory effects of public and private investments on sports areas to their economies are not at a negligible level. According to this study carried out at the city of Erzurum, a sports area of 0.55 m2 is divided for each person. It was determined in the area that to improve this found value to the national sports area standard of 4 m2 per person, an area of 1,180,595 m2 for sports is required on a whole city scale. It was also determined that in all sports areas equipment elements, parking areas and green areas are not enough and it was suggested that these areas should be increased. The opinion of the people in the city was determined by the questionnaires completed by randomly selected 365 people. Obtained data were statistically analysed to find the relationships between people`s sports choices and age, mean income and education level by using MINITAB software.
