Abstract

​This policy brief describes physical activity among California children and adolescents. Using data from the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) from 2013-14, the study found that only 31 percent of children ages 5-11 and 18 percent of adolescents ages 12-17 meet the physical activity guidelines of engaging in at least one hour of physical activity every day. Neighborhood characteristics, including safety and proximity to parks, are related to physical activity levels among youth. Also, among older children, boys are more active than girls. Additional efforts by state and local policymakers, as well as communities, are needed to promote physical activity to increase the proportion of children and adolescents achieving recommended amounts of physical activity.

This policy brief was funded by The California Endowment.
