Active Lives Survey small area estimates for Sussex

The second year of results have been published for Sport England’s Active Lives survey. Small area estimates have been produced for MSOAs (middle super output areas). The map below shows the Inactivity rate (percentage of the population doing less than 30 minutes of physical activity a week, excluding gardening). Red areas have the highest estimated level of inactivity, green areas have the lowest estimated levels of inactivity.

 

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, deprivation and inactivity risk data from the DataHub. The map below shows the Inactivity rate (percentage of the population doing less than 30 minutes of physical activity a week, excluding gardening). Red areas have the highest estimated level of inactivity, green areas have the lowest estimated levels of inactivity. It is notable that there is significant variation within relatively small areas.
