Places to walk: convenience and regular physical activity

To guide their efforts to promote regular physical activity, Powell, Martin, and Chowdhury use the Georgia Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System to determine whether adult Georgians were aware of safe and convenient places for walking, what places they most commonly envisioned, and whether the proximity of those places was associated with self-reported physical activity behaviours. The data gathered suggest that proximity is an important factor in the identification of a safe and convenient place to walk.
