Abstract: Background: There is a paucity of nationally representative data available on the correlates of physical activity (PA) among people with depression, especially in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Thus, we in- vestigated PA correlates among community-dwelling adults with depression in this setting. Methods: World Health Survey data included 24,230 adults (43.1 ± 16.1 years; 36.1% male) with ICD-10 di- agnoses of depression including brief depressive episode and subsyndromal depression aged ≥ 18 years from 46 LMICs. PA was assessed by the International Physical Activity Questionnaire. Participants were dichotomised into low and moderate-to-high physically active groups. Associations between PA and a range of socio- demographic, health behaviour and mental and physical health variables were examined using multivariable logistic regressions. Results: 34.8% of participants with depression were physically inactive. In the multivariate analyses, inactivity was associated with male sex, older age, not being married/cohabiting, high socio-economic status, un- employment, living in an urban setting, less vegetable consumption, and poor sleep/ low energy. In addition, mobility di ffi culties and some somatic co-morbidity were associated with not complying with the 150 min per week moderate-to-vigorous PA recommendations. Conclusions: The current data provide guidance for future population level interventions across LMICs to help people with depression engage in regular PA.
