Description:
Promoting physical activity has been identified as a key public health strategy to improve good health in advanced age. As the population in the Republic of Ireland (ROI) and Northern Ireland (NI) is ageing, it is important to understand the relationship between physical activity and the physical and mental well-being of older people. As part of its data mining programme, CARDI funded the Stay Active study, a research project led by Dr. Elaine Murtagh of Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick (Murtagh et al., 2014). It examined the relationship between physical activity participation and health status in older adults in Ireland, North and South using five sources: u The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA) 2011 u The Survey of Lifestyles, Attitudes and Nutrition in Ireland (SLAN) 2007 u The Irish Sports Monitor 2011 u Health Survey Northern Ireland (HSNI) 2010/11 u The Northern Ireland Sport and Physical Activity Survey 2009/10 This research brief presents a summary of the main findings from the research and other information collated by CARDI
