    Objectives

    Few studies have described physical activity in rural populations.

    Methods

    Self-reported responses about regular physical activity (maintained long enough to work up a sweat) were analyzed from a private household census of Otsego County with an 86.6% response rate.

    Results

    This survey categorized 46.2% of county residents as sedentary.
