Public Knowledge of Concussion in Youth Sports - A Local Study

Arya Dean Faghri


Abstract: This paper attempts to determine how much people really know about the serious issue of concussions in sports, especially in young adults. A survey questionnaire consisting of six questions was distributed amongst 100 random people in three different organizations in the States of Delaware and Pennsylvania in the United States. The results of the survey instrument were compared with the established statistical data regarding concussions in general and amongst young adults in particular. Results indicate that for the most part the general population is unaware of the seriousness of the issue of concussions in youth. More education, research and outreach by governments at all levels, the academia and the private sector are needed to address this issue and help curtail its occurrence now and in the future.
