Research & Insight

Our Insight and Research page is aimed to help you understand the local and national context plus the impact of participation and non-participation in sport and physical activity on the population.

The number of people playing sport is tracked through the Active People survey. Since 2005/6, the findings have become a valuable resource for the sports sector. Results are released in June and December each year.

These tools are designed to help to better understanding but they are also excellent resources when putting in applications for any funding applications that aim to achieve health or physical activity improvement in the populace.
