Kiwis fit and happy, but scared to go out at night - survey
2:35PM Thursday February 22, 2007

New Zealanders think they are a healthy, active lot, but don't feel safe on city streets at night or take public transport, a survey released today finds.

Researchers talked to 500 people in each of New Zealand's 12 largest cities and districts and 1500 residents from the rest of the country, asking them about their quality of life.

Across the country, people told researchers they exercised regularly, with 56 per cent of the city people saying they exercised five or more days a week.

Country people were slightly more vigorous, however, with 61 per cent working out at least five days a week.

Seven per cent of the city folk said they did no exercise at all.
