Physical Activity tool

This tool brings together data for the whole of England on physical activity, including walking and cycling, as well as data on related risk factors and conditions such as obesity and diabetes. The tool is easy to use and data is presented at local level to help promote physical activity, develop understanding, and support benchmarking, commissioning and service improvement.
The data is grouped into three domains: Key Indicators; Related Conditions and Supporting Information. The Key Indicators provide a summary overview of physical activity and includes a number of key outcomes from the Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF); including the percentage of adults physically active (2.13i) and physically inactive (2.13ii). Regular physical activity can reduce the risk of a number of health conditions, as listed in the Related Conditions domain, such as (colon / breast) cancer, diabetes, obesity, hypertension and depression. The Supporting Information domain provides population demographic information as well as life expectancy and deprivation values.

This tool was first released in September 2016.
