Based on these data; we were able to extract variations and study it using statistical analysis, hypothesis testing, and regression analysis.

Introduction

Understanding sports entertainment and how much consumers are willing to spend on sports is imperative for businesses to research and survey. The average Americans spent on sports entertainment in 2010 was approximately 25.4 billion, based on the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported in August 2012. (U.S. BLS) Sports entertainment spending dropped 8 percent from 2009 as consumers tightened their belts in an uncertain economy. People spent less on sports events, sports apparel, and different sports merchandise. However, at the same time, Americans spent more on home-based entertainment such as cable television and watching sports at home. We put our hypothesis to test by inquiring different variations. Here is an exhibit of our survey that we conducted:
