This survey is to help correlate areas of fair play concern to the perceived risk associated with each, so as to help in prioritizing activities in the improvement of education, guidelines and rules.

Question Title

(This is the same categorization that was used in the IOF Fair Play Survey but as there are some additional areas now included we are asking  for a new collective re-evaluation. The previous score from the larger survey, for elite-only athletes, is included in () for reference).
