This dataset contains baseline data for 1,544 participants in the Walking Works study and was used for analysis in the paper: Individual, employment and psychosocial factors influencing walking to work: implications for intervention design (Adams et al., 2017) doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0171374.
The data was collected as part of the Walking Works project which aimed to increase walking on the journey to and from work and during the working day. The project engaged with five employers in England based in the North East, Yorkshire, East Midlands, West Midlands and London. Walking initiatives were developed through recruiting employees as volunteer ‘walking champions’ and providing resources (such as materials to promote a national walk to work campaign and pedometer challenges) to encourage people to walk for all or some of their journey to work, as well as to walk more during the working day.
Consent was given to take part in the study on the basis that only researchers at Loughborough University would see the data provided, therefore we are not able to make the files openly available.
