behaviour, by Ipsos MORI. A nationally representative sample of 3,034 GB adults were questioned online in January 2009. Results are weighted to be representative of the GB adult population. Seasonal variations may affect some responses. **4% of 48million UK adults is 1.9million people

To construct the Vitality Scorecard, six different areas (exercise, diet, smoking, stress, check-ups/screenings and health knowledge) were surveyed and equally weighted to create an Index. The Index is a single number (59 per cent) that represents, in the main, the aggregate behaviour of those people surveyed, together with a smaller attitudinal component around exercise. This attitudinal component can be an important predictor in itself of the nation's future health, as intentions around exercise can quickly shape positive behaviours. An improvement in the Index over time will indicate that the population is behaving in a more healthy manner, and is likely to have improved health (e.g. lower incidence of chronic disease) in the future. As such, the Index becomes a lead indicator for health trends.
