Prevalence of insufficient physical activity varied greatly across regions and income groups in 2016. We found the highest levels in Latin America and the Caribbean, high-income Western countries, and high-income Asia Pacific, and prevalence was more than double in high-income countries than in low-income countries in 2016. In wealthier countries, the transition towards more sedentary occupations and personal motorised transportation probably explains the higher levels of inactivity. Conversely, in lower-income countries, more activity is undertaken at work and for transport; however, these behaviours are changing rapidly.
