# Quick look at participation in US slalom for the year 2000

This is just a quick snapshot of the sport -- more detailed
analysis is obviously possible, but even this allows a few interesting
conclusions to be drawn. These are based on 2000 rankings data,
which includes about 4200 results from 77 races.

## Participation by individuals

Here's a breakdown showing the number of races
vs. the number of people who went to that many races.
In other words, the first data point says that 668 people
only went to 1 race.
Combining the first two data points leads to the conclusion
that just of 2/3 of the people in the sport did 1 or 2 races.

Participation by rank
Here's a breakdown by rank percentile. For example, the first
data point here says that the 473 boats ranked in the bottom 10%
(in their classes) accounted for 800 race runs. Note that whereas
the first graph looking at participation on a per-person basis,
this one looks at it on a per-boat basis.

Rank percentile | Number of boats in this percentile | Total Races attended by these boats |

10 | 473 | 800 |

20 | 29 | 64 |

30 | 48 | 148 |

40 | 97 | 292 |

50 | 90 | 493 |

60 | 20 | 134 |

70 | 37 | 263 |

80 | 30 | 211 |

90 | 29 | 170 |

100 | 27 | 171 |
