Childhood Obesity: Factors Affecting Physical Activity
Cynthia A. Bascetta (au)
To carry out this work, the author conducted a literature review, selecting 53 articles that described work focused on factors affecting rates of physical activity for school-aged children, published from 2003 through 2006. These studies were supplemented with information obtained from organizations that recently published information on childhood obesity. The articles reviewed identified a number of factors affecting levels of physical activity in children. These factors were categorized into three groups -- demographic factors, cognitive & behavioral factors, & community factors. The body of research examined suggests that multiple factors that affect physical activity among children may contribute to childhood obesity. Illustrations.
