I am creating a database of recent results from the top 5

divisions of English football. I have a complete record for each of

those divisions for the current season plus the whole of last

season for the Premiership. Within that sample, 173 out of 3528 are

penalties. So about 1 in 20? I'll have the last 5 years of football

in the database soon so if you want a more complete answer contact

me through my website. Just out of interest, 53 out

of 3528 are own goals. -- Update: I now have data on 33,671 English

league and conference goals from the last 5 years. 1569 of 33,700

are penalties. 448 are own goals.
