Abstract

Many older people lead sedentary lives. National Health Survey physical activity prevalence data provide limited coverage of the old old ( 75 years). The Dynamic Analyses to Optimise Ageing (DYNOPTA) project s dataset provided physical activity data for 13,420 participants. Physical activity (walking, moderate- and vigorous-intensity activities in the previous week) was measured. Data were weighted and prevalence was calculated.
