Abstract

This study examines the relationship between exercise behaviors and perceived physical health status in Jefferson County, Nebraska. The Nebraska Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) was a survey administered to the residents of Jefferson County, Nebraska (n=1146). Respondents were asked to rate their perceived general health status and if they exercised in a setting other than their job in the past 30 days. A chi-squared analysis demonstrated a relationship between respondents’ perceived general health status and whether or not if they had been physically active in the past 30 days. The implications of this research suggest further education is needed for the residents of Jefferson County, Nebraska to understand the relationship between general health status and exercise.
