Small Area Estimates

Using our Active Lives Survey data, we have produced small area estimates for the 6,791 Middle Super Output Areas (MSOAs) in England.

These estimates are for:

  • Inactivity (less than 30 minutes in the past month excluding gardening)
  • Chief Medical Officer (CMO) guidelines achieved (at least 150 minutes per week in the past month excluding gardening)
  • Sport and physical activity (at least twice in the last month)

The data table provides an insight into how participation varies within a local authority by using Small Area Estimation (SAE) and data from the 2017 Active Lives Survey (November 2016-2017). More information about the data modelling process is available in the technical document.

Please note: we will shortly be publishing interactive maps in addition to the below resources.
