The purpose of this study is to identify the influences of physical activity behaviors (household, occupational, leisure) of older (65 - 85 years) women residing in rural low-income communities in the Midwest and to identify the contribution of intrapersonal determinants of physical activity (motivation [intrinsic motivation, self-efficacy], cognitive appraisal, [illness perception], and affective response) that are susceptible to change beyond that obtained by the unchanging background determinants (demographics, environmental resources, previous experience, social influence, and current health). The Model of Physical Activity Behavior (MPAB) was used as the framework to guide the study. Recruitment was accomplished through flyers, newspapers, and key informants in a rural, low income, Midwest County. One hundred and seventy six older rural volunteer women who were cognitively intact, able to perform physical activity, English speaking, and had at least one chronic illness volunteered to be interviewed. The face-to-face questionnaire, administered in the women's homes or a location of their choosing, included measures of the background and intrapersonal determinants of physical activity. Physical activity was measured with three-dimensional (house, occupation, leisure) measures including 12-month retrospective and lifelong activity components. Additionally, BMI was determined with a weight and height scales according to published standards, and an Omron 6006 monitor measured BP. Model development proceeded by systematically evaluating all the proposed relationships within the MPAB using correlations and regression analyses. Findings will assist in the development of targeted physical activity intervention strategies for elderly rural women. Only after identification of the intrapersonal characteristics unique to these women that influence physical activity can tailored interventions be developed to meet their unique needs. AN: MN030123
