Back to Physical Activity.

*Meets recommendation = Moderate physical activity for 30 or more minutes per day, five or more days per week or vigorous physical activity for 20 or more minutes per day, three or more days per week.
Some Physical Activity = Do some physical activit y, but do not meet recommendations ABOVE.
Physically Inactive = Respondents reporting no activity.

^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.
