The 2016 Active Healthy Kids Australia Report Card marks the release of the second full report on Physical Activity of Children and Young People in Australia. The Report assesses 12 physical activity indicators (physical activity behaviours, traits, and the settings and sources of influence, and strategies and investments, which have the potential to impact these behaviours and traits).

As in 2014, Australia was assigned a failing grade (D−) for Overall Physical Activity Levels.

The 2016 Report highlights the concept of Physical Literacy, specifically the ‘tools’ children need to be physically active for life. The results of the 2016 Report Card will contribute to the second ‘Global Matrix’ of grades, benchmarking Australia against 37 countries.
