Few studies have described physical activity in rural populations.
This study describes the frequency, types, and correlates of physical activity in 29 304 free-living adults in a rural county in New-York State.
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.
This survey categorized 46.2% of county residents as sedentary.
