The bar chart illustrates what percentage of men and women in different age ranges in Australia performed regular physical activity in 2010. Overall, with the exception of who are aged 15-24, women were more physically active than men.

As far as the first three age groups are concerned, among the youngest population (15-24) 52.8% and 47.7% of men and women were physically active respectively. Furthermore, the percentage of physically active men dropped among those who are 24-34-year-olds by more than 10% and reached the lowest point of 39.5% for the 35-44 years old. In contrast, women’s percentage steadily rose, reaching 52.5% in the latter age group. The most significant gap between men and women is also seen among those who are aged 35-44.

As the population ages, the gap between men and women closes. In the age group of 45-54 more than 43% of men and 53% of women had regular physical activity. While the percentage of active men had increased to 45.1%, women’s proportion had slightly gone down to 53%. With regard to Australians who are 65 years old and beyond, 46.7% of men and 47.1% of women had regular physical activity and the difference between physically active male and female population was the least significant among this age group.
