Abstract

Questionnaire surveys suggest physical activity levels in children are low, particularly among children from deprived areas. Using accelerometers, it was found that children from a deprived inner city school were active at recommended levels and had similar levels of activity to children in other studies from more affluent populations. However, this finding was dependent on the threshold used to define moderate activity.
