Children's activity across the globe

Report cards on the physical activity of children and youth across the world have been released revealing how countries compare in getting their youth active.

Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance was responsible for organising the cards which graded countries on nine common indicators, overall physical activity, organised sport participation, active play, active transportation, sedentary behavior, family and peers, school community and the built environment and government strategies and investment. The cards reflect standardised grading across countries ranging from A= excellent to F = failing.

In the UK, the grades given for overall physical activity are:

England D
Scotland F
Wales D

There is no data available for Northern Ireland.
