Abstract:

This study employs structural equation modeling to examine the influence of self-efficacy and social connection on physical activity participation for different ethnic groups. Results showed that female Caucasians who have better social connections and higher self-efficacy engage in more physical activity. African American men who have higher incomes are more self-efficacious, better connected, and exercise more regularly. With regard to Hispanics, females who have better social connections exercise more. However, neither social connections nor feelings of self-efficacy have any bearing on the connection between age and physical activity among Hispanics. Different interventions for different target ethnic groups were suggested.
