I love this infographic.

These infographics are wonderful and should be in every park and recreation center around the country.

Brian,
We are glad that you find the infographics useful. It is something that we plan to continue to do more of to help present data in a more visually appealing format that everyone can understand. Please do post this in your parks and recreation centers and share with your colleagues! Let us know if there is anything else that we help with as well.

Thank you,
Active Living Research
