Bulletin 09: Children’s preferences for active versus quiet pursuits
The Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute studies the physical activity levels of children and youth through a study called CANPLAY (the Canadian Physical Activity Levels
Among Youth Study) using pedometers to measure daily steps. The study also explores factors associated with physical activity, including asking a subsample of parents about their children’s preferences for the types of activities that they like to participate in (such as a preference for being active, a preference for quiet, non-active pursuits, or liking both types of activities equally well).
