Supplementary notes

Note: Young people are respondents aged 5-17 and adults are respondents aged 18 and older. Data has been weighted by the source to reflect the population.

According to the source, participants are people who have been physically active in sport or recreation in the past seven days, where this participation excludes any physical activity undertaken for work or chores. Participation can include physical activity undertaken to get from one place to another (active transport) if the respondent considers it to be for sport or active recreation.

The survey question was phrased as follows:
For adults: ‘Which of the following have you done in the last 7 days, and which have you done in the last 12 months? Please only select the activities where you have been physically active specifically for sport, exercise or recreation. Note: reporting is based on responses to the 7 days component of the question. AND Please select the additional activities you have done in the last 7 days.’.
For young people: ‘Please tick all the ways you have been physically active for sport, PE, exercise or fun in the last 7 days (not including today).’.
