Insight and data portal

Access data and research about physical activity and sport in London

Good decision making relies on getting access to the right data.

Launched in 2016, the London Sport Insight and Data Portal is designed to provide easy access to data and research relevant to the development of physical activity and sport in London.

Data can be used to support identification and targeting of particular demographics that are not currently participating in enough physical activity and sport, or to understand key trends influencing behaviours among London’s populations.

Using the free tools available, including the data dashboard, insights blog and the research catalogue, the Insight and Data Portal provides you with access to evidence which can support strategic decision making, evidence funding bids, and target investment into the areas and demographics that need it most.
