Ranking the laziest countries by steps taken!

Today on the Buzz List we found a Stanford University study published in the journal Nature that looks at the laziest countries in the world. The study looked at 46 countries and used smartphone data to average the number of steps people took per day. Kristina Guerrero and Jared Cotter are taking a look at three spots and how they fared.

3.  Hong Kong

Congrats Hong Kong! You are the least lazy country on the list.The forth most densely populated country in the world had an average of 6,880 six thousand steps a day. Way to step it up.

2.  United States

Next, we're looking at who's in the middle of the road when it comes to being lazy and that is the United States of America. They came in 30th on the list of 46 countries, earning the ranking by having an average of 4,774 steps a day. Most Americans have to drive everywhere.

1.  Indonesia

When it comes down to counting steps, Indonesia is taking the least amount. The average is 3,513 steps each day. Indonesia is made up of thousands of islands so there's probably a lot of swimming going on.
