Notes

Abstract: In today's society, the Baby Boomer generation is aging and adults are living longer, healthier lives. Studies have proven that exercise can benefit individual health and mobility. Data for this study were taken from the 2001 edition of the National Health Interview Survey and focused on the interview population over age 65. Using logistic regression analysis with the SUDANN statistical software, the relationships of regular exercise and difficulty experienced during mobility tasks were examined. Older adults were less likely to exercise five or more times a week than younger adults and experience more difficulty in tasks such as standing for extended periods and walking up steps. The results of this study could be helpful in discerning which adults would benefit from exercise intervention and if there are any health benefits from regular exercise.
