Bulletin 17: Steps towards becoming more active

2014-2015 Physical Activity Monitor (Adult focus),

February 28, 2017

The 2014-2015 Physical Activity Monitor asked Canadian adults about factors associated with their activity level, including steps that they may have taken in the past year with the purpose of becoming more active. Adults were asked about steps which ranged from seeking information to more active involvement such as trying a class or taking the stairs. In addition, they were also asked about the degree to which these steps helped them actually become more active. This bulletin summarizes these findings in relation to individual, household, and community characteristics.
