Abstract

This BriefTrends describes the prevalence (%) of adults meeting muscle-strengthening activity (MSA) guidelines across U.S. states.

1. Purpose

To examine the ranked proportion of adults meeting muscle-strengthening activity (MSA) guidelines across U.S. states.

2. Data Source

The 2017 (N=50) and 2019 (N=49) cycles of the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS).

3. Population

Noninstitutionalized adults 18+ years of age in U.S. states.

4. Variables

1). Meeting muscle strengthening activity (MSA) guidelines (participated in MSA exercises 2+ times per week) and 2) U.S. state. Estimates in the graph are averaged across the two years, less NJ, which displays its 2017 estimate only.

5. Analysis

Prevalence (%) estimates of meeting MSA guidelines across U.S. states. SAS and Excel were used for all analyses.

6. Findings

The average prevalence of meeting MSA guidelines among adults in the U.S. was 30.1% (SD=2.7%) in 2017, 34.9% (SD=3.5%) in 2019, and 32.5% (SD=2.8%) in the averaged data.
