Back to Exercise.

These are new physical activity guidlines, developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),
for the 2011 BRFSS Survey.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2011 are NOT comparable to previous years.

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2011 Annual Results Technical Notes for more details.
