|Description: ||The survey shows that the youngest of the sample, 16-18 years, were the most
active (95%) and the 55 to 75 year olds were the most inactive (51%). Of the
remainder, married men (70%) were more active than married women (67%), and
the more affluent (81 %) more active than the less well off (63%).
Walking is the most popular physical activity (28%) followed by Swimming (17%)
and Cycling (11%). Soccer is the most popular sport (11 %) followed by Golf (9%)
and Snooker/Billiards (7%). As 1% represents 25,000 people it is seen that 425
thousand participate in Swimming countrywide whereas the Rugby (1 %) pool of
activity is 25,000 people.|
