Promoting Sport & Physical Activity

Sports equipment

The Active Lives Survey asks people aged 16 and over across England about the sport and physical activities they take part in. The first survey was completed between November 2015 and November 2016. Further results are published twice a year. Sport England publish detailed reports on each survey period. Please note Public Health England (PHE) include gardening and only include data for those aged 19+ so different activity rates are shown in the PHE data. You can view the results in each Sussex local authority and compare with the county and national results below. On our mapping page you can view the activity levels at local authority and neighbourhood level.

Inactivity at MSOA level

Sport England have produced small area estimates of activity at MSOA level. The table below shows inactivity at MSOA level in Sussex. You can filter by local authority and priority group. Hover over each bar to view the proportion of older people, people with disabilities and long-term health conditions, and the deprivation of each area. The wards covered by the MSOA are shown to give you an indication of where this is in your local area. You can also view this data on our mapping page.

Inactivity at neighbourhood level

Active Sussex have estimated inactivity levels at neighbourhood level. This data is indicative, to help target interventions to the right areas, rather than definitive. To receive this data in more detail, and to discuss how to use this data, please contact us on the details at the bottom of this page. You can also view this data on our mapping page.
