Semester: Spring 2024

Despite well researched and known benefits of physical activity (PA) participation, a large disparity in adolescent participation exists in the U.S. The inequity of PA participation among genders, races, and socioeconomic status is extremely visible in data collected across high schools in the U.S. In this thesis, the possible contributing factors, including geographic location, socioeconomic status, accessibility to organized sports, psychological factors, societal norms, etc. are examined.
