  1. Epidemiology of Physical Activity and Inactivity Jamie Stang, PhD, MPH, RD University of Minnesota Division of Epidemiology

  2. Healthy People 2010 • Lists 15 objectives related to physical activity including: • Participation in light to moderate activity at least 5 times/week (30 mins or more) • Participation in vigorous activity at least 3 times/week (20 mins or more) • Engaging in strength training activities 3 or more times per week

  3. Healthy People 2010 Guidelines • 23% meet guidelines for light-moderate physical activity 5 times per week • 12% meet guidelines for vigorous activity 3 or more times per week

  4. Prevalence of Physical Activity and Inactivity among Adults • 38% do not engage in any type of physical activity • 62% of adults participate in some type of activity • 23% of adults report engaging in strength training activities

  5. Percent of Adults Reporting Some Physical Activity, by Race/Ethnicity and Gender Source: Schoeborn CA, Barnes PM. Leisure-time physical activity among adults: United States, 1997-98. Advance data from vital and health statistics; no. 325. DHHS Publication No. (PHS) 2002-1250. Hyattsville, MD: National Center for Health Statistics. 2002.

  6. Percent of Adults Who Engaged in Physical Activity, by Age: United States, 1997-98

  7. Percent of Adults Who Engaged in Strengthening Activity, by Age and Gender

  8. Percent of Adults Who Engaged in Physical Activity, by Education

  9. Percent of Adults Who Engaged in Physical Activity, by Poverty Status

  10. Prevalence of Physical Activity among Youth • 65% of high school students meet vigorous physical activity guidelines • 27% of high school students meet light-moderate physical activity guidelines • 54% engage in strength training activities at least 3 times per week

  11. Students Meeting HP 2010 Recommendations by Race/Ethnicity and Gender Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance -- United States, 1999. MMWR. 2000;49(SS-5).

  12. Physical Activity and Age • Physical activity decreases with age among school-aged children and adolescents • Decrease more pronounced for vigorous physical activity than light-moderate activity • Corresponds high with decreases in participation in PE classes in schools

  13. Physical Activity within Schools • 56% of students enrolled in physical education classes (PE) • 29% attended PE classes daily • PE requirements inversely related to grade level

  14. Percentage Percentage of Schools Requiring Physical Education, by Grade

  15. Physical Activity and Gender • Males are more physically active and engage more frequently in strength training • 72% of males and 57% of females met vigorous physical activity guidelines • 29% of males and 24% of females met light-moderate physical activity guidelines • 64% of males engaged in strength training compared to 44% of females

  16. Disability and Physical Activity • 56% of adults with disabilities report no physical activity • 95% of students with disabilities participate in PE classes • 25% in adaptive PE classes • 38% in both adaptive and general PE classes
