Abstract: Information about Sport Participation Index (SPI) is a critical factor in the sport development process. Sociodemographic data can be a cost effective instrument to increase effi ciency of local policies that promote sport participation (SP). Although bibliography about SP is vast, the analysis and comparison of previous works is complex due to heterogeneity in methodologies. There is an enormous disparity in SP results in Portugal: Marivoet (2001) refers that SPI in Portugal is 27%; Almeida, & Graça (1998) refer that the non participation percentage in Portugal is 60%; and according to the Eurobarometer report (2004) Portugal presents the lowest fi gure of SPI, 22%, followed by Greece 26%, while the European average is 38%. There is a limited availability of data about SP in small cities. The presented study intended to: a) characterise SP in two small cities; b) identify target groups in order to increase the effi ciency local authority efforts’.
