A study is the first to use a large range of instruments/ tools and include older adults from many ethnic groups to determine factors affecting their physical activity.

Those who reported lower physical activity tended to be older, have less years of education and reported lower social engagement, networking, resilience, mental health, self-health rating, and higher levels of depression, anxiety, pain, and body mass index compared to the moderate to high physical activity groups.
