Investigating socio economic variation in physical activity (PA) and sedentary time is important as it may represent a pathway by which socio economic position (SEP) leads to ill health. Findings on the association between children's SEP and objectively assessed PA and/or sedentary time are mixed, and few studies have included international samples.
