Identifying inequalities that drive inactivity

The Essex Centre for Data Analytics (ecda)is supporting the Essex Local Delivery Pilot (LDP) to identify communities that are at particular risk of escalating levels of inactivity.

ecda has successfully shared the first Let’s Get Physical dashboard with the LDP team. This initial iteration uses Sport England data to highlight areas with inactive communities of people, providing both the LDP and Sport England with their first round of actionable insight to inform commissioning decisions.

By providing a detailed picture of the communities that do not currently participate in 30 minutes of physical activity per week, and a greater understanding as to why, ecda will enable Active Essex to deploy targeted resources to those communities most in need in Colchester, Tendring and Basildon and reduce associated health risks such as obesity, mental health issues, and social isolation.

We are currently restructuring data to share a live dashboard with the LDP and Sport England during April, with a future ambition to share more widely with key partners across Essex.
