Abstract

This study aims to examine how Russian adults make their choices about expenditures on non-professional sports to improve their health. The data was taken from Levada-Center survey on the attitude of people to their health and the quality of medical care in Russia, conducted in 2017. Probabilistic models of binary choice, Heckman selection model and semiparametric model by Newey were employed. The results of the study showed positive relationship between expenditures on sports and individual’s income. Gender, age, profession, rural and entourage were among other factors that determined individual expenditures on sport.
