MEDINA, Catalina; JAUREGUI, Alejandra; CAMPOS-NONATO, Ismael  y  BARQUERA, Simón. Prevalence and trends of physical activity in children and adolescents: results of the Ensanut 2012 and Ensanut MC 2016. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2018, vol.60, n.3, pp.263-271.

Objective:

To describe the prevalence and trends of physical activity (PA) in children and adolescents from Ensanut 2012 and Ensanut MC 2016.

Materials and methods:

Physical activity levels were obtained from the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) and the nternational Physical ActivityI (IPAQ) questionnaires for children and adolescents respectively.

Results:

More than 80% of the children and 35% of the adolescents in Mexico do not meet the PA recommendations. From 2012-2016, girls and schoolchildren in the rural area showed an increase in participation in organized activities and sports.

Conclusion:

The prevalence of PA is low in children and adolescents and the trend has not improved in the last six years.
