Average Number of Steps/Miles a Person Walks in a Day

Anyone ever seen a stat like that? Google is unsucessful.
Thanks in advance.

Depends. Growing up in a small town in the south, I walked very little; from point a to point b is ususally a long distance that is not very pedestrian-friendly (i.e., no sidewalks). So I drove. Everywhere.

Now living in the big city, I walk much more than ever. Parking is usually a problem here in the Emerald City, and I’m able to walk to work from home in about 30 minutes. And I get my exercise! BTW, you don’t see any overweight people walking on a regular basis (hint, hint).

I’d say I walk about 4 miles a day.

The health authorities here are trying to get us to aim for 10 000 steps a day so clearly we do less than that usually.

It is not a reliable stat by any means but I did just come across this here
