Youth Sport Participation and Associated Sex Differences on a Measure of Spatial Ability
Anthropology and Sociology
Sex-related differences on measures of spatial ability favoring males are commonly found in psychological studies. This study investigated the possible association of differential participation in organized youth sport with scores on a measure of spatial ability among a sample of 167 college students. Such participation was not significantly related to spatial scores of men or women nor did it reduce sex differences.
