Examining the Correlates of Physical Activity for Whites, Blacks and Hispanics in a National Sample: The Role of Demographics, Social Connections and Self-Efficacy
Unformatted Document Text:  1 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.

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.
