dc.description.abstract <p>Due to the lack of clarity of physical activity guidelines over the past decade, the general populations’ knowledge was surveyed to find evidence of confusion. 587 people were questioned using a 14 question survey accessed through an online format. Questions were formatted to be answerable by the general population, while testing their knowledge of the government issued physical activity guidelines. Of the survey respondents, the majority claimed physical activity is one the most important behaviors to benefit health. The majority also knew that at least moderate physical activity is needed for significant health benefits. However the majority of the sample didn't know specific time usage for both moderate and vigorous intensity. However, the survey did show significant results of children's physical activity guideline knowledge.</p>
