Author(s) Lei Yao, Jingdong Chang*
National game is the highest level of comprehensive sports games in China which is competed by each province (city and autonomous region) as unitary units. As the imbalance of economy and population among different provinces (cities and autonomous regions), there are imbalance of competitive sports developments. Breaking through the traditional mode of regarding provinces (cities or autonomous regions) as the units for comparison and analysis, this research adopts the approach of comparing six regions in administrative districts and defining seven indicators as factors influencing Chinese regional competitive sports developments. Through the way of linear regression, this essay gradually chooses the factors which exert effects on Chinese competitive sports’ regional differences. It is found that competitive strength, economical strength, in-team player, reserve player and on-the-job coach are the principal factors affecting Chinese competitive sports’ regional differences. Meanwhile, the essay tends to provide references for balance development between regions on China by establishing regression equation MS = 1.601 + 1.159 × XS3 + 0.300 × XS1 + 0.2497 × XS4 + 0.189 × XS5 + 0.181 × XS6 of Chinese competitive sports’ regional differences.
