National walking survey
America Walks has released a report giving the results of a survey on walking, which we highlighted in a blog post in July. The national online survey was designed to increase our understanding of attitudes towards and behavior related to walking. The survey found that, while there are various reasons why people walk, “maintaining good health” was mentioned as the single most important motivator. In line with this reasoning, the survey results indicate that the more frequently an individual walks, the fewer the number of diseases a respondent reports being afflicted with.
