Abstract

Few studies examine associations between objectively-calculated neighbourhood built environment attributes and objectively-assessed sedentary behaviour in different geographical locations, especially in highly-populated environments.

We examined the associations between neighbourhood built environment attributes with the total, and patterns of, objectively-assessed sedentary behaviour..
