This is a talk I gave at the "Overcoming Barriers to Movement and Physical Activity Seminar", organised by the Movement and Physical Activity Network at the University of Leeds.
I argue that we need good data in order to devise solutions for overcoming barriers. I cite work from two recent papers, one which utilises accelerometer data and one which used mobile phone app data.
The citations for the papers discussed in the talk:
