Physical activity promotes health & wellbeing. Policy makers seek interventions that increase population-level physical activity (e.g. traffic calming measures or cycle paths to promote active commuting). Many interventions however have differential impacts for different people. We propose combining advanced simulation & modelling approaches to provide estimates of effectiveness of various interventions & identify likely resulting inequalities.
