2011 National Walking Survey

More than 7,00 people took part in the 2011 National Walking Survey conducted by America Walks.  According to the survey, top reason cited for walking among participants described as frequent walkers was to maintain good health, while the second-most cited reason was to help feel calm and less stressed.  Among infrequent walkers, the second-most cited reason for not walking was neighborhood-related barriers, such as not enough sidewalks or being wary of speeding traffic.  Read the final report (PDF, 1.91KB. Adobe Reader required) and view the September 20th America Walks webinar slide presentation (PDF, 2.28 MB. Adobe Reader required).
