Table 1 Young adolescents’ time and MVPA by location (N = 528 participants)

From: Within-person associations of young adolescents’ physical activity across five primary locations: is there evidence of cross-location compensation?

  Mean (SD) minutes/day of MVPA occurring in location Mean (SD) proportion of overall wear timea spent in location
School days Non-school days School days Non-school days
At home 5.5 (6.7) 12.0 (14.2) 20.3% (15.5) 47.2% (34.8)
Home neighborhood 5.5 (9.3) 6.8 (11.6) 9.5% (12.6) 19.6% (28.2)

School neighborhood 2.3 (4.3) 1.7 (5.0) 3.1% (5.1) 4.4% (12.8)
Other locations 5.6 (9.1) 10.9 (15.3) 9.3% (9.1) 27.3% (26.1)
All locations (Overall) 42.2 (22.5) 32.3 (21.8) 100% 100%
