Stanford University researchers collected smartphone data from more than 700,000 people across the globe to measure the amount of steps they took in a day. Most smartphones have a built-in accelerometer that can record steps.
They found the average amount of daily steps around the world is almost 5,000, equivalent to about 4km. The laziest nation - with an average of 3,513 steps a day - was Indonesia, followed by Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and the Philippines.
Hong Kong was the most active place, with the population walking an average of almost 7,000 steps a day, which equates to about 6km. China was a close second with an average of 6,189 steps walked a day, followed by Ukraine, Japan, Russia, Spain and Sweden.
