Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the association between the neighbourhood social environment and meeting recommendations for 24-h movement behaviours in youth. Participants were a sample of children and adolescents from the 2019 National Survey of Children's Health (N = 21 259; 48.2% female). Knowing where to go for help (odds ratio (OR) = 2.66, p = 0.006) and a safe school environment (OR = 1.99, p = 0.020) correlated with high probability of meeting 24-h movement behaviour recommendations in females. Novelty: The neighbourhood social environment associates with meeting 24-h movement recommendations in females.
