This analysis reinforces the importance of physical inactivity as a risk factor for non-communicable disease (NCD) in Scotland.
It uses data to model the estimated burden of disease attributed to inactivity related to ischaemic heart disease (IHD) at multiple levels – national, health board and by local authority area.
As part of this study, a model was developed to provide the methodology and formula that can be applied to other health conditions where relative risk of ‘very low’, ‘low’ and ‘some’ physical activity can be calculated and the population attributable fraction for physical inactivity applied.
