Physical Activity by Insurance Type

Finger Lakes and Western New York Region (2021)

This chart uses Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) survey data to estimate the percentage of adults participating in any leisure time physical activity in the past 30 days. Overall, three out of four adults in the Finger Lakes and Western New York regions said that they exercised in the last 30 days. Respondents with private insurance were significantly more likely to report leisure time physical activity compared to either Medicaid recipients or those who are uninsured.
