Abstract The objective of the study was to describe the daily pattern of active commuting in adults from Gran Santiago de Chile according to gender and day of the week. We analyzed data from the 'Experimental Survey on the Use of Time in the Gran Santiago de Chile' including 3477 adults aged ≥ 15 years (1886 women and 1610 men). The assessment of active commuting time was performed as a daily record every 30 minutes, 14 hours/day and analyzed in 3 domains: leisure and physical activity-LEX, occupational-WK, and commuting to work and school-COM. We used Chi Square test to examine the associations of daily patterns of active commuting with gender and day of the week. Results:<\b>
The percentage of men and women involved in the three types of active commuting were respectively: 6.2% and 6.4% for LEX; 3.4% and 2.8% for COM; and 7.2% and 11.6% for WK. The mean time spent in these 3 domains (LEX, COM and WK) were 52.1, 48.2 and 51.5 min/day for men, and 51.1, 44.6 and 51.3 min/day for women. According to the weekday and weekend day the distributions were as follows: LEX- men 10.3% and 8.8%; women: 9.2% and 5.6%; COM- men 7.1% and 4.9%; women: 6.6% and 1.6%; WK- men: 9.1% and 10.2%; women: 10% and 12.1%.
