Active Living Research Conference 2016-Workshop Materials

These are materials from workshop on ‘Evaluating the uptake of built environments within natural experiments’ conducted at the 2016 Active Living Research Conference. Increases in the range of methodological options to evaluate natural experiments have led to complex choices for practitioners and researchers about how best to evaluate their impact. This workshop introduced a range of methods for measuring uptake of built environments within natural experiments. Appropriate techniques to measure use of infrastructure, in order to understand who is benefiting from the environmental change/intervention, is an important part of understanding the impact on active living.
