Abstract:

Purpose: To present and analyze physical activity participation trends, prevalence, and areas of strategic development among minority (Black and Latina) women.

Methodology: Secondary analysis of data from the National Health Interview Survey 2008-2014 was explored to assess prevalence of physical activity among minority women (Black women N=23,162, Latina women N=37,103). The aim of this study is to examine trends and correlates physical activity participation. The information is important for the development of strategies to promote physical activity participation in minority women. The social ecological model will be the guiding framework for this study, which considers a multilevel approach to understanding and promoting physical activity. Logit modeling was used to examine mean differences between groups and related variables.

Results: Trends in the data for Black women show increased odds of meeting moderate aerobic activity (MAA) guidelines with increased education [OR=1.054, CI=0.137-8.135] and increased income [OR=7.236, CI=0.678-77.27]. Trends for meeting strength guidelines among Black women were similar, with increased education and income leading to increased odds of meeting guidelines. None of the data for MAA among Latina women was statistically significant, however, trends show Latina women are more likely to meet MAA guidelines as education and acculturation increases. Odds of meeting strength guidelines increase as education increased [OR=1.879, CI=1.182-2.988, p=.008], income increased [OR=2.148, CI=1.264-3.651, p=.005], and acculturation [Eng/FB (OR=.681, CI=.502-.925, p=.014); Sp/FB (OR=.456, CI=.296-.702, p=.000). The odds of Latinas meeting strength guidelines decrease with pregnancy [OR=.107, CI=0.026-0.442, p=.002]. For both Black and Latina women, trends showed decreased odds of meeting guidelines with increased BMI. Practitioners who serve these populations should be aware of these results and trends when discussing physical activity with their patients and tailor their approach according to the education level, acculturation status, and BMI of their patients.
