Research and Insight

Understanding Derbyshire's people and places

To achieve our aims, we need to understand Derbyshire; it's people and places. We use research and insight to help us do this.

Our work, and that of our partners will be more effective if it is informed by a good understanding of demographics, trends and future projections.

In this section, you will find useful research and data on sport development at a county, district and national level, which will help you to understand the local area, activity participation rates, demographic profiles and much more.

Assisting planning and delivery

Research and insight is useful for local authorities and National Governing Bodies in their planning and delivery. It is also useful for clubs and groups who are applying for funding.

If you find a piece of research or information elsewhere that you think would be useful to share here, please contact Martin Hird on the details above.
