Click on graph to expand

Walking is by far the most popular sporting activity with 59% of Glaswegians walking for at least 30 minutes over a 4 week period.  However, it is notable that this is below the national figure of 67%.  Glaswegians are more likely than Scotland as a whole to play football, go running/jogging, cycling and multigym/weight training.  However, more than one in four Glaswegians and one in five people across Scotland didn’t participate in any sport over a 4 week period.

Notes on data

It should be noted that many of the apparent differences in the figures between Glasgow and Scotland may not be significant due to the relatively small sample sizes.
