Physical Activity in Rural America – Prevalence, Promise, and Partnerships
Christiaan Abildso, PhD; Co-Lead, PAPREN Rural Active Living Workgroup
Associate Professor, West Virginia University School of Public Health
Dr. Abildso and his research team analyzed data in the 2020 National Health Interview Survey public use dataset to identify rural-urban and U.S. Census region variations in the prevalence of meeting the aerobic, muscle-strengthening, and combined aerobic and muscle-strengthening guidelines during leisure time among adults aged ≥18 years, controlling for demographic characteristics. Prevalence of meeting the aerobic, muscle-strengthening, and combined aerobic and muscle-strengthening guidelines was consistently the lowest in Nonmetropolitan counties and highest in the West region.
As always, there will be a moderated Q&A session following the presentation. You can send us your questions in advance or enter them in the Q&A box during the presentation.Register for Grand Rounds
