Physical Activity Among Adults
In 2014, 49.9% of adults in the United States reported levels of physical activity consistent with meeting the adult aerobic guideline. Adults who are male, younger, or white or who have higher levels of education are more likely to meet the guidelines (see figure below). People without disabilities are also more likely to meet the guidelines than people with disabilities (data not included).
