Sport England this morning released the latest Active Lives data for adults, covering November 2020 to November 2021. This survey period includes five months of notable restrictions (two-and-a-half months of full national lockdowns and two-and-a-half months of significant restrictions).

The proportion of adults moving for at least 30 minutes a week in Greater Manchester is 70.3%, which equates to 1,590,900 adults.

This is an increase of 39,000 (1.4%) adults moving across the County compared to the previous 12 months, but still 3.5% (59,000 adults) below pre pandemic data figures (2019).
