Back to Physical Activity.

*Data in this table were derived from the physical activity questions.
Yes = Respondents who report doing moderate physical activity for 30 or more minutes per day, five or more days per week or respondents who report doing vigorous physical activity for 20 or more minutes per day, three or more days per week.
No= Respondents who report no moderate physical activity or less than 30 minutes per day, or less than five days per week and no vigorous physical activity or less than 20 minutes per day, or less than three days per week.

^Use caution in interpreting percentages with a numerator of less than 20. N = numerator, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
