Query Results for Hawaii's Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) Data - Physical activity - met 150 minute aerobic recommendation, Age Adjusted

Adults who participated in 150 minutes (or vigorous equivalent minutes) of physical activity per week Filter: Yes
Year Filter: 2015, 2013, 2011
Data Grouped By:County

Chart Not Available

The data are grouped by more dimensions than the chart is capable of displaying. If you would like this chart you will need to remove one or more grouping selections on the query definition builder page and then resubmit the query request or choose a different chart that supports multiple dimensions.

Question Wording:

Based on a series of survey questions to estimate the proportion of adults who engaged in aerobic physical activity of at least moderate intensity for at least 150 minutes/week (or vigorous equivalent). Questions are asked in odd-numbered years only.

Statistical Stability

Statistical stability, reported in the data table, is based on a statistic called the "Relative Standard Error," or RSE, which is the standard error expressed as a proportion of the point estimate (e.g., 30% of the point estimate).

"Stable" is displayed when the relative standard error (RSE) is below 0.30 and the count or rate may be considered stable.

"Unstable" is displayed when the RSE is 0.30-0.50. An unstable count or rate may fluctuate widely across time periods due to random variation (chance).

"Very Unstable" is displayed when the RSE is greater than 0.50. A very unstable count or rate should not be used to inform decision. Problems with statistical instability typically occur when there is a small number of health events in a small population. You may combine years or otherwise increase the population size used in the query to achieve a more stable count or rate.

"No Variance" is displayed when there is no record, or only one record in the sample population, for the selected indicator and demographics.

Weighted Survey Data

The percentages reported above have been produced by weighting the sample so that the results better represent the Hawaii population.

Survey Sample

The survey is conducted using scientific telephone survey methods. Both cell phones and land lines are included. Excluded are adults living in group quarters with a central phone system such as college dormitories, nursing homes, military barracks, and prisons. Results have been weighted to the adult population by age, gender, race, education, marital status, home ownership, telephone source (landline versus cell phone), and county of residence.

Average Annual Population Estimate

The denominator includes all survey respondents ages 18 years and older except those with missing, don't know and refused answers. If the query was limited to a particular sub-population-group, only those respondents are included in the denominator.

Asymmetric Confidence Intervals

The confidence bounds are asymmetric. They do not extend evenly above and below the percentage, especially as the percentage gets close to 0% or 100%.
