The seminar will focus on findings about influences on physical inactivity patterns in mid-adulthood using data from the 1958 British Birth Cohort. In this cohort, leisure time activity frequency was measured with the same questions at 33y, 42y and 50y. The talk will describe the stability and change in inactivity in mid-adulthood and then examine life-course influences on these inactivity patterns. Influences considered will be from early life and adulthood. The work highlights the importance of assessing activity within individuals as they age and allows for identification of vulnerable groups for whom action is needed to avoid future leisure-time inactivity.
