Patterns of Physical Fitness for those Living in Tennessee

Patterns of physical activity vary considerably by gender, age, ethnicity, socio-economic status, and other demographic variables. Researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conduct regular surveillance of physical activity and other health behaviors to understand patterns and trends in the population. One of the more frequently cited survey instruments is the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS). Based on the data, approximately 50 percent of Americans report getting regular physical activity (defined in this survey as 301 minutes of moderate physical activity 5 or more days per week, or vigorous physical activity for 201 minutes 3 or more days per week). The website for the BRFSS (www.cdc.gov/brfss/) allows users to examine patterns and trends in health behaviors by a variety of demographic variables and to see the activity levels within specific states.
