abstract
Physical activity is an important aspect in the improvement of wellbeing and in the increase of the number of years in a person's life. Many factors affect the prevalence of physical activity among certain groups of people and the prevalence of inactivity in other groups of people. These factors include age, education level, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, and gender of either a single individual or a community that people are members of. My research focuses on each of these epidemiological components that can result in the emergence of a physically active lifestyle or a more sedentary lifestyle. It has been designed to help with the improvement of healthy behaviors among people. By being able to determine high-risk epidemiological situations an individual or community is able to target these factors and develop physical activity programs that deviate from settings that may jeopardize a successful physical activity program.
