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.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
