INACTIVITY

WHO estimates that a quarter of European adults are insufficiently active. Across Europe, inactivity’s contribution to all-cause mortality amounts to over 500,000 deaths per year. Inactivity imposes economic costs of 80.4 billion euro per year to the EU-28. Looking ahead, this economic cost burden is set to rise – we conservatively estimate that 2030 could annual costs be as high as 125 billion euro (in 2012 prices). Within European nations, lower-income demographics tend to undertake physical activity less regularly than their counterparts from more affluent segments of society.
