Abstract
OBJECTIVES: To identify the independently associating factors on physical inactivity in Korean men and women. METHODS: The data of 5554 men and women (18-74 years) were analyzed using national health and nutritional examination survey data that included questionnaires and physical examinations. RESULTS: Multiple logistic regression analyses showed that significant factors were low monthly income, low education, current smoking, increased waist-to-hip ratio, and low health concern among men; living in rural areas, low monthly income, low education, perceived poor health status, low health concern, and emotional stress among women. CONCLUSIONS: Health care providers should focus on education and counseling regarding the factors that influence physical inactivity.
