Now with a third full year of data, this Active Lives report provides an updated comprehensive overview of adult (age 16+) sport and physical activity in England in the 12 months from November 2017 to November 2018.
The positive news is that in the 12 months to November 2018, the number of adults who were regularly active has increased by almost 500,000, whilst the number of inactive adults has fallen by 185,000. These results have primarily been driven by an increase in the number of women who are regularly active. As a result, the gender gap between men and women has narrowed by over 90,000, from 352,000 to 258,000.
