Insight, data and research provides a wide range of valuable information to help you identify the need and strategic context for your sport and physical activity interventions.

The Herts Sport & Physical Activity Partnership uses insight to evaluate the needs of the local communities in order to put in the most effective support.

Whether you are a policy maker, researcher, programme manager or just curious about Hertfordshire, our insight pages contain data and information from many sources as well as links to help support your work and inform your decision making. 

Our insight offer is divided under two main sections.

National insight

This section brings together documents to help you understand different audiences, evidence how sport and physical activity contributes to communities and provides useful information to help you show the evidence base for sport and physical activity.

The information here largely relates to national research and evidence. Some examples are: Census 2021 results, national strategies and guidance documents, government department data, Sport England resources and much more.
