Back to Physical Activity.

*Data in this table were derived from the physical activity questions.
Yes = 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 vigorous physical ac tivity 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.
