ANJOS, Luiz Antonio dos; BARBOSA, Thomaz Barcellos Côrtes; WAHRLICH, Vivian  e  VASCONCELLOS, Mauricio Teixeira Leite de. Patterns of physical activity during a typical day for adults in Niterói, Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil: the Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Health Survey (PNAFS). Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2012, vol.28, n.10, pp. 1893-1902. ISSN 0102-311X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2012001000008.

The current study aimed to assess patterns of typical daily physical activity in a probability sample (N = 1,689) of adults in Niterói, Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil, using 24-hour recall. The sample was designed in three stages (census enumeration area - CEA, household within the CEA, and an adult selected with equal probability among all eligible adults in the household). Physical activities were classified as light, moderate, or vigorous and grouped in household chores, occupational, leisure-time, and commuting. Men performed more moderate and vigorous activities during significantly more time (91.2 ± 5.6 and 8.2 ± 1.4 minutes, respectively; mean ± SD) as compared to women (68.5 ± 2.7 and 2.9 ± 0.4 minutes, respectively). The proportions of adults that reached the recommended 30 minutes of moderate/vigorous physical activity per day were 63.8% (men) and 55.9% (women). Household chores for women and leisure-time activity for men contributed the most to total moderate/vigorous physical activity. In conclusion, most adults in Niterói are physically active.
