With the latest release of the Active Lives Survey (November 2016/17), we have looked at how active Greater Manchester is.

The percentage of inactive people (27.8%) is slightly higher than National levels (25.7%). Whilst the percentage of active people (61.4%) is slightly lower than National levels (61.8%). This suggests a bigger gap between those that are inactive and those that are doing 150 minutes per week. This equates to 616 thousand inactive people and 1.36 million active people in Greater Manchester.

Across the Greater Manchester Boroughs what does this look like?
