Exercise

Volume 486: debated on Tuesday 13 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many and what percentage of people aged 16 years and over (a) from black and ethnic minority groups, (b) with a limiting disability, (c) from lower socio-economic groups, (d) who were female and (e) from the total population, (i) did and (ii) did not regularly engage in at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity level sport on at least three days a week in each of the last three years, broken down by region; and what assessment he has made of his Department’s progress towards its Public Service Agreement targets in this area. (244956)

[holding answer 18 December 2008]: The ‘Taking Part’ survey is a continuous household survey providing national data on participation in culture, leisure and sport by adults aged 16 and over.

Tables 1 to 4 show the number and percentage of adults who engaged in moderate intensity level sport for at least 30 minutes on at least three separate occasions during the past week. The data relate to the four sub-groups of the population referred to in the question, by region, for each of the last three years. Data are also provided for the total population in Table 5. The percentage of adults who did not participate can be deduced from the data given.

Due to small sample sizes, differences between regions or years may not be statistically significant.

A final assessment of progress against the Department's SR04 PSA3 target was published on 11 December 2008. Full details can be found at:

http://www.culture.gov.uk/reference_library/publications/5653.aspx

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many and what percentage of people aged 16 years and over (a) from black and ethnic minority groups, (b) with a limiting disability, (c) from lower socio-economic groups, (d) who were female and (e) from the total population, (i) did and (ii) did not access at least one museum or gallery in each 12 months in each of the last three years, broken down by region; and what assessment he has made of his Department's progress towards its Public Service Agreement targets in this area. (244959)

[holding answer 18 December 2008]: The “Taking Part” survey is a continuous household survey providing national data on participation in culture, leisure and sport by adults aged 16 and over.

Tables 1 to 4, as follows, show the number and percentage of adults who visited at least one museum or gallery in the past 12 months. The data relate to the four sub-groups of the population referred to in the question, by region, for each of the last three years. Data are also provided for the total population in Table 5. The percentage of adults who did not attend can be deduced from the data given.

Due to small sample sizes, differences between regions or years may not be statistically significant.
