Teens who Engage in Regular Physical Activity

Value: 37.0 percent
Measurement
Period:
2011
Location: County : Miami-Dade
Comparison: FL State Value
Categories: Health / Exercise, Nutrition, & Weight
Health / Teen & Adolescent Health
Health / Diabetes
What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of high school students who were physically active for a total of at least 60 minutes per day on five or more of the 7 days preceding the survey.
Why this is important: 
Inactivity during childhood and adolescence increases the likelihood of being inactive as an adult. Adults who are less active are at greater risk of dying of heart disease and developing diabetes, colon cancer, and high blood pressure. Half of American youths aged 12-21 are not vigorously active on a regular basis, and about 14 percent of young people report no recent physical activity. Participation in all types of physical activity declines drastically with both age and grade in school. Being physically active helps build and maintain healthy bones, muscles, and joints. It helps control and maintain weight, build lean muscle, and reduce fat. In addition, exercise helps to prevent or delay the development of high blood pressure. Moderate amounts of physical activity are recommended for people of all ages.
Technical Note:  The regional value is compared to the Florida state value.
