Trafford Adult Activity Levels Nov 17-18

Overall there are more adults moving in Trafford, an increase by 8,700 since 2015-16. This is mostly due to an increase by 7,600 adults (+3.8%) achieving 150 minutes a week. But there has also been an increase by 1,100 adults that are fairly active (by +0.5%).

But there are one fifth of adults that are inactive (22.9%), which is below the GM and national averages, and equates to 42,500 adults in Trafford. Furthermore, over one third (36%) 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 gender and disability gaps have narrowed, however there were not enough responses for the age and SES gaps in Trafford. Whereas the trend at GM level has seen the gender, age and disability gaps narrow, but the SES gap remain the same.
