Overall inactivity levels have stayed the same since 2015-16 in Bolton, but there has been an increase (by +1.2%) in those that are achieving 150 minutes or more of physical activity a week, to meet the recommended movement required to stay healthy.

However, there are still almost one third of adults that inactive (29.1%), which is above the GM and national averages, and equates to 65,200 adults in Bolton. Further two fith's (42.1%) are not meeting the recommended movement required to benefit their health, again above the GM and national averages.

Whereas the trend at GM level has seen the gender, age and disability gaps narrow, but the SES gap remainĀ the same.
