Salford Adult Activity Levels Nov 17-18

Overall there are more adults moving in Salford, an increase of 14,100 adults since 2015-16. Whilst those achieving 150 minutes a week has increased by 6,800 adults (+2.2%), those who are fairly active has increased by 7,600 adults (+3.4%).

But there are still a quarter of adults that are inactive (25.5%), which is below the GM average but above the national average, and equates to 51,200 adults in Salford. Further two fith's (40.3%) are not meeting the recommended amount of movement required to benefit their health, again above GM and national averages.

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