Brief Summary:

The aims of the proposed study are to:

  1. Examine how youth and their parents use and perceive three active living domains for physical activity (PA): schools, recreation, and transportation environment;
  2. Identify patterns and predictors of environmental perceptions of physical activity;
  3. Compare and contrast youth evaluations of physical activity resources with research team objective evaluations of physical activity resources;
  4. Using above data, refine the conceptual framework of physical activity phenomena in low-income minority communities guiding this research and develop items for a quantitative survey measuring parental and youth environmental perceptions of physical activity for a future trial with this population.
