Insight & Research

We gather and commission insight on physical activity and sport. This includes Sport England’s Active Lives, Public Health and Census data. This section includes a number of links to data and websites which we and our partners use to build an accurate picture of health, physical activity and sport.

We will continue to add to this site, so if you have any local or national data to share with us, then please let us know.
