Physical inactivity is now a public health problem. Population health research showed the presence of ‘neighborhood’ effect on health as a result of obesogenic environments. The MAUP has raised issues of comparability.Through ArcGIS we evaluated the association of 4 components of the built environment with children’Fitness Score in three non-nested geographies. The study showed that MAUP affects the research on physical activity and the studies of disease pathways based on statistical model.
