The bar chart illustrates the proportion of men and women in six age groups in Australia in terms of physical activity they partook in on a regular basis in 2010.
Overall, men involved in physical activity more often than their female counterpart did. Additionally, both genders at the age of 65 and over shared the similar proportions in taking physical exercise regularly.

By contrast, men were less active than women between the ages of 25 and 34. Likewise, in the age group 35 to 44, the proportion of men doing regular physical activity was 39.5%, which was around 10% lower than the figure for women.
