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.

How many points are awarded for a penalty kick in soccer?

When a penalty kick scores, it counts as a goal (just as any other goal). Penalty kicks that do not score (similar to regular goals) count for nothing.The exception are kicks from the penalty mark (the "Penalty Shootout": the tie-breaker sometimes used when a game must have a winner, such as in most tournaments). When these kicks are successful, they are not counted as goals, but tracked separately to determine the winner.
