Mean (and 95% confidence intervals) pedometer derived steps per day for all 5 measurement years combined separated by gender. Differences were found for step counts according to day of the week for both boys and girls (both p<0.001). Overall, boys took more steps per day than girls (p<0.001). The horizontal lines a and b represent published step per day recommendations of 13,000 steps for boys and 11,000 steps/day for girls respectively.
