    Nº. 03 – Physical Activity and Sports Outside of Class Hours Among Children Six Years of Age – Québec Longitudinal Study of Child Development Series

    This article attempts to answer the following question: How are 6-year-old children from Québec doing in terms of physical activity and sports, at an age which is crucial for the development of healthy lifestyle habits?

    Data collected in 2004 as part of the Québec Longitudinal Study of Child Development (QLSCD) has provided the basis for some answers to this question. Part of the survey focused on whether children used a physically active means of getting to school, such as walking or cycling.
