Inactivity Maps

Active Sussex have used the small area estimates published by Sport England to estimate inactivity levels in neighbourhood-sized areas with around 1,500 people in.

Estimating inactivity at neighbourhood (LSOA) level

Active Sussex have used the small area estimates published by Sport England to estimate inactivity levels at Lower Super Output Area (LSOA) level. LSOAs are neighbourhood-sized areas with around 1,500 people in. To produce these estimates, we used the MSOA small area estimates, and weighted these by disability, age, and deprivation data.

The map below shows the 'Inactivity Rate' (percentage of the population doing less than 30 minutes of physical activity a week, excluding gardening). Darker shaded areas have the highest estimated level of inactivity, lighter shaded areas have the lowest estimated levels of inactivity. It is notable that there is significant variation within relatively small areas. For detailed estimates please contact Active Sussex using the information at the bottom of this page.

Estimating inactivity at Middle Super Output Area (MSOA) level

Sport England have produced new small area estimates 's Active Lives survey results for 2018-19 . The map below shows the Inactivity rate (percentage of the population doing less than 30 minutes of physical activity a week, excluding gardening) for MSOAs (middle super output areas). Darker shaded areas have the highest estimated level of inactivity, lighter-shaded areas have the lowest estimated levels of inactivity.
