Epidemiologic Methods in Physical Activity Studies

A large amount of evidence from observational studies indicates that low levels of physical activity and cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) are associated with increased mortality risk. This chapter draws from selected epidemiological studies to illustrate broadly this line of research and to discuss specific issues that must be considered when interpreting and generalizing existing study findings. It summarizes available data on physical activity, CRF, and mortality risk in several population subgroups according to their demographic and health status.

Keywords:   cardiorespiratory fitness, physical activity, mortality risk, CRF
