People’s employment status has an impact on how physically active they are during the work week, but men and women are affected differently, new research shows. The investigators found that full-time employed men in either active or sedentary jobs were more active than healthy unemployed men during the work week. In comparison, women with sedentary jobs were less physically active Monday through Friday compared to unemployed women. These differences in activity levels between employed and unemployed people did not extend to weekends, the researchers noted.
