Abstract: Physical inactivity is one of the most important public health issues in the United States and internationally. Lack of physical activity helps to explain the epidemic of obesity in developed countries. This presentation examines the public health importance of active living, the complex factors that influence walking and cycling, and the ways in which crime may affect physical activity.

Increasingly, links are being identified between various elements of the physical or “built” environment and physical activity. The built environment—the physical form of communities—includes land use patterns (the location of activities across space), large- and small-scale built and natural features (e.g., architectural details, quality of landscaping), and the transportation system (the facilities and services that link one location to another). There are a number of related constructs that may be helpful in enhancing our understanding of the relationship between the social environment and physical activity, in particular the role of crime. Data from five states (Maryland, Montana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia) document a higher level of physical inactivity among persons who perceive their neighborhoods to be unsafe. In these data, the effect of unsafe neighborhoods appeared highest among older persons, women, racial/ethnic minorities, and persons with a high school education or less. This presentation will review the operational definitions of crime as well as the categories of space of concern: 1) enclosed spaces with limited exit opportunities (e.g., parking structures) and 2) anonymous and deserted open spaces (e.g., empty parks). It will also review the factors that may modify the perception or risk, such as gender, age, and poverty.

Further research is needed to improve the technical quality of measures, understand the relevance to various population groups, and understand the interactions of factors in the built environment with those in the social environment.

Abstract: Despite facing similar environmental threats, environmental conservation efforts in Taiwan, Japan, and China vary greatly. In my paper, I argue that this is best explained by examining differences in institutional structure and domestic politics.
