Specific research questions of this project are:
Q1: How self-reported and objectively measured PA and SED affect direct (healthcare utilization) and indirect (sickness and unemployment benefits, taxable and capital income, pensions) costs and benefits?
Q2: How PA and changes in PA levels are associated with direct and indirect costs?
Q3: How objectively measured PA, SED and individual PA profiles at 46y are associated with the long term direct and indirect costs?
Q4: How socio-economic status (income, occupation, education), health behaviors (smoking, alcohol, nutrition, sleep) and self-reported health aspects are associated with PA and SED?
Q5: What kind of intervention strategies and recommendations are needed to help promote PA in a cost-effective manner? (Literature review)
