Summary of "Objectively measured sedentary time before and after transition to retirement:The Finnish Retirement and Aging Study (FIREA)."

Retirement is associated with an increase in self-reported daily sedentary time, but no longitudinal evidence exists on how objectively measured sedentary time changes during retirement transition. The aim of this study was to compare objectively measured daily and hourly sedentary time before and after retirement and examine whether these changes differ by gender and occupational status.
