Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
The current statistics on sports facilities suggests that 4 billion NOK (divided on 700 facilities) are planned to be used annually for new sports facility projects and renovation projects of old sports facilities. These statistics are based on planned projects and not on realized projects. In addition, it is not distinguished between new facility projects and facility renovation projects. The current statistics is based on applications for so-called gaming funds, which are all registered in a sports facilities information system. The information system is complicated to use, and the data in the register is not perfect: it is inconsistent and sometimes incorrect or incomplete. This thesis provides an overview of the number of built sports facilities in Norway between 1996 and 2016. Further, it provides cost statistics for sports halls, based on extracted data from the information system, which was preprocessed and then analyzed using regression models and ANOVA. This work shows that, in average, 560 sports facilities have been built each year between 1996 and 2015 (1 000 facilities if one includes so-called local activity facilities). In average 24 sports halls have been built each year, with an average cost of 36 million NOK. Sports halls built in Oslo have in average costed 14 to 23 million NOK more to build than sports halls in the rest of Norway.
