Back to Physical Activity.

*Data in this table were derived from the exercise question.
Yes = Respondents who report any level of physical activity or exercise.
No = Respondents reporting no physical activity or exercise.

^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.
