United States of Inactivity — mapped by county


The darker the color, the less activity/more inactivity.

From the Centers for Disease Control website: "Estimates of leisure-time physical inactivity or lack of physical activity or exercise are now available for all 3,141 counties or county equivalents, such as boroughs and parishes, in the United States. The estimates for leisure-time physical inactivity were derived using data from the census and the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS)."


"These county-level estimates, ranging from 10.1% to 43.0% in 2008, reflect adults who report no physical activity or exercise other than at their regular job, and supplement existing county-level estimates available for obesity and diagnosed diabetes."
