…….PhD Viva! Sorry if I’m a little quiet over the coming months, need to get my thesis wrapped up!
For this we need to know the average amount of sedentary behaviour when it is measured in different ways:
Harvey JA, Chastin SFM, Skelton JA, 2014. How Sedentary are Older People A Systematic Review of the Amount of Sedentary Behavior. Journal of Aging & Physical Activity, 2014 Nov 11. [Epub ahead of print]
To answer this we need to consider the PREVALENCE of sedentary behaviour:
Harvey, Juliet A.; Chastin, Sebastien F.M.; Skelton, Dawn A. 2013. “Prevalence of Sedentary Behavior in Older Adults: A Systematic Review.” Int. J. Environ. Res. Public Health 10, no. 12: 6645-6661.
