An analysis and evaluation of the administrative budget statement between 1984 and 1995 for the South Korean Ministry of Culture and Sport
The purpose of this study was to determine whether the Korean government and Ministry of Culture and Sports (MCS) made efforts to carry out their goals and policies to adequately fund "sports for all" through analyzing the MCS budget statements between 1984 and 1995. The MCS budget statements were analyzed in accordance with the organizational, functional, and economic character budget classifications. Through the organizational classification, the average percent allocated to the MCS of the entire Korean government budget allocation between 1984 and 1995 was .22%. In particular, since 1989, the percentage of the MCS budget has decreased on the basis of the organizational classification. Although "sports for all", which means recreational sports for all Koreans, was instituted in 1988, most items in the functional classification were affected by initiating the Korean Sports Council for elite sports. Through the economic character classification, the Sport Encouragement was the only item allocated for "sports for all". Also, while the average percent for elite sports was 44.42% between 1984 and 1995, the average percent for "sports for all" was 2.30% out of the total MCS budget. Therefore, it could be concluded that the Korean government and MCS have continued to focus only on elite sports from 1984 to 1995.
