The Participation Survey conducted by the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) took place from July 1st to October 3rd, 2016.

The primary focus of the Participation Survey was to determine the extent to which the population of Curaçao engages in sports and cultural activities. Additionally, the survey explored the relationship between the population’s level of participation and their demographic, social, and economic characteristics.

Passive participation: Engagement as a spectator, such as watching or following sports events or cultural events like dancing at a dance party.
