April 2009 online edition
The April 2009 online edition of Canadian Social Trends, released today, features another article from the series Life in the metropolitan areas entitled: "Are suburban residents really less physically active?"
This article quantifies and discusses the difference between the levels of physical activity of residents of high-density neighbourhoods and low-density, suburban neighbourhoods of metropolitan areas. It uses data on time use from the 2005 General Social Survey, focusing on the activities of people aged 15 and over.
The April 2009 online edition of Canadian Social Trends, No. 87 (11-008-XWE, free), is now available from the Publications module of our website.
