Biddle, Stuart J. H. ORCID: (2015) Sedentary behaviour: applying the behavioural epidemiological framework. In: Physical activity, exercise, sedentary behavior and health. Springer Japan, Tokyo, Japan, pp. 71-77. ISBN 978-4-431-55332-8


Sedentary behaviour – sitting time – has become a popular area of research to compliment that on moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. In this chapter, the behavioural epidemiology framework will be used to structure discussion concerning the measurement of sedentary behaviour, health outcomes, and interventions. Sedentary behaviour is an important area worthy of study.
