Filetype[PDF-1.48 MB]

  • Description:
    "The State Indicator Report on Physical Activity, 2010, provides information on physical activity behavior and policy and environmental supports within each state. Physical activity, essential to overall health, can help control weight, reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers, strengthen bones and muscles, and improve mental health. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) goal of increasing physical activity among all Americans is supported by key strategies such as creating or enhancing access to places for physical activity, enhancing physical education and activity in schools and physical activity in child care settings, and supporting urban design, land use, and transportation policies. National and state-specific information is reported in the State Indicator Report on Physical Activity, 2010, for behavioral, policy, and environmental indicators. The behavioral indicators are derived from physical activity recommendations outlined in Healthy People 2010 Objectives--our nation's framework for health priorities, and the 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans (2008 Guidelines)--a science-based guide on the types and amounts of physical activity that provide substantial health benefits for Americans. Behavioral indicator data are from CDC-supported health surveillance systems. This report also presents 12 policy and environmental indicators which are derived from strategies recommended by The Guide to Community Preventive Services, CDC's Guide to Strategies for Increasing Physical Activity in the Community, The Surgeon General's Vision for a Healthy and Fit Nation, and The National Physical Activity Plan. They are from multiple data sources and measure several aspects of a state's ability to support physical activity. Each indicator can be measured in most states. Individual states, however, may have information collected through state-wide surveys and/or have policies enacted outside the monitoring period that can augment the data in this report and thus be used to further inform decision makers." -p. 1
