Topic - How many climbers stay in the sport?

Voltemands - on 07 Jun 2012
Inspired by the 50 years of climbing thread.

A question for everyone really, but I guess the longer you've been in the sport, the more valid your opinion (maybe?) I guess. With the understanding that just like the - how many climbers are there in the UK? question, cannot be accurately or easily answered. In your own experience, roughly what % of the climbers that you've met and stayed loosely in contact with, or have knowledge of through other climbers -
A) are still regularly involved in the sport
B) participated in climbing for less than a year and gave it up
C) participated in the sport medium term (~5 years ) and gave it up
D) participated in the sport long term (~10 years) and gave it up
E) participated long term and now only dip in and out of the sport, very irregularly
F) sadly exited the sport in an unfortunately, involuntary way

I also understand that there are so many facets to our sport, from gym climbing too FA's of huge faces, in the back side of nowhere, but incorporating inter-sport movement would make things even more complicated...

Thanks for your opinions or tales
