A report is given on the results of a nationwide survey (N=1,004 parents, 513 daughters) studying the influence of parents and family factors on girls' participation in sports. A large majority of parents regarded participation in sports as an important part of their daughters' development, and that it is as important for girls to be involved in sports as for boys. Survey results are depicted on graphs revealing the perceptions of parents and daughters regarding sport participation. (JD)
