Abstract: The status of adult physical activity participation was examined to determine the status quo of involvement and to suggest strategies for encouraging adults to increase their physical activity. Data from seven selected surveys, 1961- 1982, provided the information for the secondary analyses. National and regional data were studied from several perspectives, i.e., geographically, demographically, with respect to lifestyle, and from a leisure point of view.
