Percentage distribution of periods of vigorous physical activity per week among persons ages 18 to 24, by sex: 2008

NOTE: Questions related to leisure-time physical activity were phrased in terms of current behavior and lacked a specific reference period. Respondents were asked about the frequency and duration of physical activity during leisure time. They were asked how often they did vigorous activities during their leisure time for at least 10 minutes that caused heavy sweating and large increases in breathing or heart rates. Persons who indicated that they were unable to do vigorous activity were included in the "Never" category. Detail may not sum to totals due to rounding.
