Abstract Introduction:<\b>
Understanding television (TV) viewing barriers and facilitators during adulthood is important to ensure the effectiveness of interventions and actions to reduce overall sedentary time. We aimed to examine changes in TV viewing in young adults over 10 years and identify modifiable sociodemographic and health behavior determinants of these changes. Methods:<\b>
Participants (n=2929) of the longitudinal Cardiovascular Risk in Young Finns Study had self-reported their TV time in 2001 (aged 24-39), 2007 and 2011 and answered to repeated questionnaires to provide additional other information, as well as the required medical examination. The determinants of change (slope) in TV viewing were examined by using a linear growth curve model. Results:<\b>
In males, increasing attention to health habits was inversely associated with a slope of TV viewing, whereas age and becoming unemployed were positively associated with the slope of TV viewing over time. In females, increasing physical activity, becoming employed, motherhood and being normal weight were inversely associated with the slope of TV viewing, whereas age and staying in non-manual work were positively associated with the slope of TV viewing. Conclusion:<\b>
This suggests several gender specific determinants of change in TV time that can help identify potential targets for interventions to prevent excessive TV viewing during adulthood.
