Table 2 Time spent in physical activity types, stationary behaviours and number of steps/day among 1670 adult Copenhageners (Denmark) participating in the fifth examination of the Copenhagen City Heart Study

From: Time spent cycling, walking, running, standing and sedentary: a cross-sectional analysis of accelerometer-data from 1670 adults in the Copenhagen City Heart Study

Behaviour, min/day Overall population
N = 1670
Median (Q1-Q3)
Time in bed 479.50 (445.00–519.17)
Sedentary behaviour 579.07 (508.86–645.79)
Standing 182.51 (143.22–225.51)
Moving 68.66 (53.25–88.11)
Walking 82.58 (63.32–106.32)
 Walking slow 19.48 (13.34–27.95)
 Walking fast 55.07 (40.29–73.84)
 Climbing stairs (up/down) 4.37 (2.37–6.80)
Number of steps/day 9288.08 (6932.22–12,003.23)
LIPA 91.29 (70.6–113.93)
Cycling 1.24 (0.00–11.51)
 Cycling, among those cycling >0 min/day
 Prevalence
8.31 (2.48–18.20)
60.84%
Running 0.12 (0.04–0.46)
 Running, among those running >10 s/day
 Prevalence
0.61 (0.27–4.00)
43.77%
MVPA 70.72 (50.36–93.52)
  1. All estimates are in min/day except for number of steps/day that is presented in number of steps taken per day
  2. N, number of observations
  3. Q1-Q3, first and third quartile
  4. Moving consists of small movements without regular walking during a standing posture
  5. Walk slow and fast corresponds to walking <100 and ≥100 steps/min, respectively
  6. Prevalence refers to the prevalence of cycling >0 min/day and running >10 s/day (on average), respectively
  7. s, seconds
  8. LIPA, light intensity physical activity
  9. MVPA, moderate-to-vigorous physical activity
