We used an activity space approach to explore the relationships between environmental conditions around and between activity locations, trip purpose and walking. Specific attention was dedicated to the role played by “trip purpose” on the i) the odds of walking, and ii) as a
Is older adults’ physical activity during transport compensated during other activities?
