This research shows that more nonmetro Illinoisans are physically inactive compared to their metro counterparts. Data
analysis reveals that 80% of nonmetro residents are either overweight (Body-Mass Index more than 25, but less than 30)
or obese (Body-Mass Index greater than or equal to 30). Logistic analysis of physical activity with various predictors
suggests that daily intake of fruits contributes positively to the log odds of exercising.
