Participation in sufficient levels of physical activity provides significant health benefits. The monitoring of physical activity levels in the Western Australian population is therefore necessary for developing and implementing strategies and programs for increasing participation. In 2009, the Physical Activity Taskforce (PATF) conducted a survey to measure physical activity levels amongst Western Australian adults. This survey is a follow up to surveys conducted in 1999, 2002 and 2006 (1-3).
