Supplementary notes

Note: Young people are respondents aged 5-17. 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 young people: ‘People do different activities for different reasons at different times. So, thinking about the last time you did this physical activity for sport, PE, exercise or fun, what was the main reason you did it?’.
