2015 kids CANPLAY (Pedometer study),
January 31, 2017
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 sub-sample 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).
