Description:

Levels of physical activity are often reported as
the proportion of people who meet
recommended guidelines and the proportion of
people who are sedentary.
Percentage of adults who undertake physical activity for less than 30 minutes per week, HSNI 2013/14
 
Numerator: Number of survey respondents aged 19 years or over who take less than 30 minutes of exercise per week, HSNI 2013/14
Denominator: Number of survey respondents aged 19 years or over, HSNI 2013/14
 
An LGD’s value is assumed to be equal to its HSCT value. This will mask any LGD variation within that HSCT.

In July 2011, the Chief Medical Officers of the four UK countries introduced revised guidelines for physical activity.  Over a week, adults aged 19 and over should aim to undertake 150 minutes of moderate intensity in bouts of 10 minutes or more.

This data presents the results from the 20113/14 Health Survey Northern Ireland.  This is a continuous survey which runs annually covering a range of health topics.

The fieldwork for the survey was conducted by the Central Survey Unit of Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA) and covers the period April 2013 to March 2014.

Data were collected using Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI) and where appropriate Computer Assisted Self Interviewing (CASI) from those aged 16 and above in private households in Northern Ireland.

A random sample of 5,850 addresses across Northern Ireland was selected for interviewing. The final achieved sample was 4,509 individuals. The response rate for the survey was 66%.
