Correlates of Change in Adults Television Viewing Time: A Four-Year Follow-up Study
Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, 06/26/2012
Ding D et al. – A significant neighborhood walkability × working status interaction indicated that, for those who were not working, living in a highly walkable neighborhood was associated with a 23% lower TV viewing time at follow–up. Adults with lower educational attainment, adults with lower occupational and transport physical activity, men with higher domestic physical activity, and nonworking adults living in lowly walkable neighborhoods were at higher risk of increase in TV viewing time. Interventions should target multiple variables at the individual, social, and environmental levels to address age–related increases in TV viewing time.
