Active Lives Survey – Adults Sussex has broadly mirrored the national trend with the impact of Covid-19 causing a worsening in inactivity rates to the highest levels recorded over the ten periods of the Active Lives Survey to date. The total inactive population in the county stands at 337,000, compared to 294,000 in the first Active Lives Survey period in Novermber 2015-November 2016. There appears to be a split with inactivity rates getting slightly or significantly worse in the most urban areas (Crawley, Brighton & Hove, Adur & Worthing, Hastings, Eastbourne). Areas with a mixture of villages and towns have conversely stayed the same or in some cases improved (Mid-Sussex, Chichester, Arun, Rother, Wealden, Lewes). The only district which doesn’t fit this pattern is Horsham which got slightly worse.
