Abstract

This study focused on the association between socio-demographic characteristics and three sedentary behaviors among industrial workers in Brazil. Data were analyzed on 47,477 workers from 24 Brazilian states, collected by questionnaires from 2006 to 2008. Individual and simultaneous presence of ≥ 4 hours of TV time per day, commuting by car or motorcycle, and sitting most of the time at work were investigated, as well as associations between these behaviors and gender, age, schooling, and family income. Simple and multiple binary logistic regression were used. Older workers and those with more schooling and higher income had increased odds of presenting two or all of the three target behaviors. Associations between gender and sedentary behaviors depend on the specific behavior. Such information can be useful for planning interventions to reduce sedentary behavior, with better targeting and more effectiveness in reaching different population subgroups.El objetivo fue investigar la asociación entre aspectos sociodemográficos y tres comportamientos sedentarios en trabajadores de la industria en Brasil. Se analizaron datos de 47.477 trabajadores de industrias de 24 Unidades Federativas de Brasil, obtenidas por cuestionario de 2006 a 2008. Se investigó la presencia individual y simultánea de ver televisión ≥ 4 horas/día, desplazamiento en coche o moto para el trabajo y pasar la mayor parte del tiempo sentado en el trabajo, así como la asociación de esos comportamientos sedentarios con sexo, edad, renta familiar mensual y nivel de escolaridad. Para eso, se utilizó la regresión logística binaria simple y múltiple. Trabajadores con más edad, escolaridad y renta tuvieron mayor razón de oportunidades de presentar dos de los tres comportamientos sedentarios investigados, así como la presencia simultánea de ellos. Las asociaciones entre sexo y comportamientos sedentarios dependen del comportamiento investigado. Tales informaciones pueden ser útiles para planear acciones de reducción de comportamientos sedentarios mejor dirigidas y más eficientes en el alcance a diferentes subgrupos de la población.
