Gender and education differences in sedentary behaviour in Canada: an analysis of national cross-sectional surveys | BMC public health | 2020
“While few differences were found for total objectively-measured sedentary time, gender and education differences in type-specific sedentary behaviour were more prevalent. Cross-survey data consistently identified that male gendered individuals engaged in more video game play, leisure screen time, and passive travel, while female gendered individuals engaged in more leisure reading. Those with a higher education or household education reported more leisure reading and passive travel. Education differences in screen time were often age dependent, with leisure computer use greater in higher education groups in adults only and leisure television watching generally higher with lower education in children and adults, but not youth.”
