All 12 LDPs will be collecting data on physical activity and wider social outcomes at regular intervals throughout the life of the pilots to track the impact of the LDPs on the communities that they are working with. Essex baseline data was collected in November and December 2019 and confirmed that inactivity is high (57.3%) in the LDP priority areas and gave some interesting findings around capability, opportunity and motivation that will be further explored through qualitative research in 2020.
PHYSICAL ACTIVITY INTERACTIVE DASHBOARD
The Essex Centre for Data & Analytics (ecda) have been commissioned to create an interactive dashboard of data relating to physical activity in a project known as ‘let’s get physical’. The dashboard is still under construction, but a report of key insights has been produced.
STATE OF LIFE SURVEY
Following the announcement of the COVID-19 lockdown on 23rd March 2020, the University of Essex and Jump, working with the Essex Local Delivery Pilot (LDP) and ECC’s Research and Insight team, launched the State of Life survey. The State of Life survey is web-based and distributed via social media channels and is designed to gather key insights on wellbeing across Essex. The survey findings are currently being used to inform decision making around recovery planning by the Essex LDP, ECC, district councils and representatives from the health and voluntary sectors.
