NOTES: Data are for the civilian noninstitutionalized population. Total, men, and women are age-adjusted to the 2000 standard population using five age groups: 18–44 years, 45–54 years, 55–64 years, 65–74 years, and 75 years and over. See Appendix II, Age adjustment. Leisure-time inactivity is defined as not engaging in at least 10 minutes of physical activity which causes an increase in sweating, breathing, or heart rate.
