Abstract

HIGHLIGHTS:
-Different built environment attributes are associated with physical activity in high- and low-middle income countries.
-Walkability and land use mix were positive and population density negative for physical activity in high-income countries.
-Access to recreation and neighbourhood characteristics were positive for physical activity in low-middle income countries.
-Research should focus on advancing the evidence base for built environment attributes and sedentary behaviour.
-Built environment attributes need to be considered in future research, policy and practice within a complex system.
