Abstract

Objectives. This study examined the relationship between acculturation andleisure-time physical inactivity among Mexican American adults. Methods. Using data from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, we estimated the prevalence of physical inactivity according to place of birth and language used at home. Results. Spanish-speaking Mexican Americans had a higher prevalence of physical inactivity during leisure time than those who spoke mostly English, independent of place of birth. Conclusions, Acculturation seems to be positively associated with participation in leisure-time physical activity.
