2014-2016 kids CANPLAY (Pedometer study)

The Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute has studied the physical activity levels of children and youth through a study called CANPLAY (the Canadian Physical Activity Levels Among Youth Study). CANPLAY uses pedometers to measure daily steps. Results from this study are based on data collected during the two time period from 2014-2016, and describes physical activity levels among children and youth ages 5-19 years using objective measures (using pedometers to measure the number of steps taken daily). This study also explores parental perceptions of factors influencing their child’s participation.
