SPEEDY Study

Overview:

SPEEDY - Sport, Physical activity and Eating behaviour: Environmental Determinants in Young people. The SPEEDY study looks at physical activity and diet in over 2000 children in Norfolk. This study aims to improve our understanding of current patterns of diet and physical activity among children. It is hoped that this will identify specific factors which are associated with diet and physical activity. This information can then be used to help design interventions and policies that promote increased physical activity and healthy eating in children.

Traffic and Health in Glasgow study

Overview:

The Traffic and Health in Glasgow study (also known as the M74 study) is a quasi-experimental study of changes to the urban environment consequent on motorway construction in deprived neighbourhoods in Glasgow. It is a mixed-method study, using a combination of quantitative (longitudinal and cross-sectional) and qualitative research methods to evaluate both individual- and population-level changes in health and health-related behaviour and to develop an in-depth understanding of how these changes are experienced and brought about.
