Definitions: This indicator includes the amount of TV watched, computer games played, and time spent talking with friends on weekdays by teens ages 12-17.

Data Source: California Health Interview Survey for 2013 through 2014, "Time spent on sedentary activities on typical weekday after school," .   (Accessed August 25, 2015).

Footnotes: The California Health Interview Survey produced county-level results for 41 counties, and area-level results for the remaining 17 counties with smaller populations, which were analyzed collectively in groupings of 3 to 7 counties. These county groupings included: Grouping 1: Del Norte, Siskiyou, Lassen, Trinity, Modoc, Plumas, Sierra, Grouping 2: Tehama, Glenn, Colusa, and Grouping 3: Tuolumne, Calaveras, Amador, Inyo, Mariposa, Mono, Alpine.  Although the percentages are listed for each individual county, those percentages for the 17 counties in area-level groupings reflect the outcomes for the entire area rather than for the single county.

Statistically Unstable (S/U): Data is denoted with an asterisk (*) for statistically unstable values as identified in the California Health Interview Survey. Percents may not sum to 100% due to rounding.
