Manchester Adult Activity Levels Nov 17-18

Activity levels have increased (by +5.4%) since 2015-16 in Manchester, are the highest across GM and above national levels. This is from a decrease in adults being both fairly active (by -2.8%) and inactive (by -2.6%).

However, there still nearly a quarter of adults that are inactive (23.7%), although below the GM and national averages, this equates to 103,300 adults in Manchester. Further three tenth's (34%) are not meeting the recommended amount of movement required to benefit their health, again below GM and national averages.

There are significant inequalities across people with a place. The disability and age gaps have narrowed, whilst the
gender and socio-economics status (SES) gaps have increased in Manchester. Whereas the trend at GM level has seen the gender, age and disability gaps narrow, but the SES gap remainĀ the same.
