Physical Activity Among Cancer Survivors

In 2009, about one-third (31.5%) of cancer survivors had not participated in any leisure-time physical activity during the past 30 days (see map below). The highest proportion of cancer survivors reporting no leisure-time physical activity lived in the South (34.3%), followed by the Midwest (32.5%), Northeast (31.3%), and West (25.5%).
