Comparison of Physical Activity by Lifestyle Between Two Rural Pediatric Population Groups.

Summary of "Comparison of Physical Activity by Lifestyle Between Two Rural Pediatric Population Groups."

Obesity prevalence is higher among rural populations than urban, including youth. Reduced physical activity levels are associated with childhood obesity. It could be assumed that the obesity disparity between rural and urban children is attributable, in part, to differences in physical activity levels; however, previous research quantifying and comparing physical activity levels between rural and urban youth are mixed. Lifestyle may be more important than geographic location in determining physical activity levels. Therefore, the objective of this study was to compare sex and lifestyle group (Hutterite vs. non-Hutterite) differences in physical activity in a free-living, rural pediatric population.
