Questions about physical activity levels are asked in the Delaware Behavioral Risk Factor Survey on odd-numbered years. For physical activity data from 2001, visit the interactive database on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
One question about leisure time inactivity, however, is asked on alternate years to allow trend analysis. The question asked in 2002 was: "During the past month, other than your regular job, did you participate in any physical activities or exercises such as running, calisthenics, golf, gardening or walking for exercise?"
