Physical Inactivity Rates [WLOs: 1, 2] [CLOs: 2, 4]<

 After reading the required resources for this week, let’s shift our attention to physical inactivity rates. As you will discover, a large number of Americans is physically inactive. Let’s take a look at global, national, state, county, and individual inactivity rates, as well as some potential health consequences of a sedentary lifestyle. 

Global and National:

Assess the physical inactivity data on the World Health Organization (WHO) website including the Insufficient Physical Activity (Links to an external site.) (choose “Adults, both sexes” via the “View more Indicators” tab on the top left) interactive map and the Prevalence of Insufficient Physical Activity Among Adults Data by Country (Links to an external site.) dataset.

  • Which countries have problems with physical inactivity? Please name five.
  • How does the U.S. rank in terms of its physical inactivity?


Examine the Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity: Data, Trends and Maps (Links to an external site.) (choose your state, and select “Physical Activity” for category, and “Physical Activity Behavior” for Topic, as well as the most current year of available data).

  • List the percentage of adults who do not engage in leisure time physical activity in your state.
  • How does the CDC determine whether an adult is physically inactive or not (see Footnotes)?


Evaluate your specific county’s physical activity rate via the County Health Rankings (Links to an external site.) link (choose your state, then click on your county via the “Overall Rankings in Health Factors” map. Physical inactivity data can be found under the “Health Behaviors” data.

  • Compare and contrast the county data to the rest of the state and to the nation.


Describe your personal contribution to the physical inactivity prevalence rate for your county. Is your physical inactivity level below, at, or above the currently listed rate?

Health Consequences:

Assess two potential health consequences of physical inactivity or sedentary behaviors. Support your assessment with at least one scholarly source.

Your initial post must be a minimum of 250 words in length and supported with at least one scholarly source. Ensure all sources used for your posting are properly cited and referenced, according to APA formatting guidelines.
