The study tracked the steps of 1,136 adults around the United States who wore pedometers for two days in 2003. The results were compared to similar pedometer studies in Switzerland, Australia and Japan. The data collected showed that Americans, on average, took 5,117 steps a day, far short of the averages in western Australia (9,695 steps), Switzerland (9,650 steps) and Japan (7,168 steps). (one mile is 2000 steps avge)

Us = 2.6miles a day tops

Oz = 4.8miles a day

Swiss = same as Oz

Japan = 3.5miles per day

now all you need is how much booze you all drink daily/yearly.

The report shows that Americans aren't anywhere the close to the top of the list in terms of alcohol consumption, they still drink their fair share, at an average of 9.2 liters of alcohol per person per year. (Beer accounts for half of this alcohol, with spirits account for one third, and wine one sixth.)

9.2 liters might not sound like a lot for an entire year, but first we have to remember that only two thirds of the American population consumes alcohol, which means that those who do actually consume 13.8 liters of alcohol each year. This equates to 467 ounces of pure alcohol, and we know that one serving is 0.6oz of pure alcohol.

That's right, according to the World Health Organization, the average alcohol-consuming American drinks 778 servings of alcohol each year. That's an average of over two servings per day, and fifteen servings each week. That number represents a 255% increase relative to what Americans themselves reported in the Gallup poll.
