Analysis Plan TitlePhysical activity during Covid-19 social restrictions in the Americas
Analysis Plan DescriptionCovid-19 pandemic affected people’s behaviours and health in different ways. Many people increased the time spent at home in sedentary pursuits and it might have detrimental effects on health. In addition, countries across Americas managed the pandemic differently, with some of them imposing heavy distancing measures to reduce virus spread while others were more complacent with the disease. We are particularly interested in investigating how physical activity varied in South (Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela) and North (USA and Canada) America’s countries. We are further interested in investigating whether having a health condition (eg. heart disease) or other health behaviors (smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol and eating a healthy diet) impacts physical activity differently across Americas. Descriptive analyses will be carried out to describe the sample in terms of age, sex, region, education and employment status,as well as health condition  and behaviors. Uni and multivariable models will be built to explore the main associations. A multilevel approach (Generalized Linear Model) will be used to analyse the changes in physical activity across survey timepoints (1 to 10) .
