Measures & Methods

Expanded Database of Physical Activity Questionnaires Available

The Standardized Questionnaires of Walking & Bicycling Database Web site provides questionnaire items and a list of validation studies concerning walking and biking items from multiple national and international physical activity questionnaires and surveys (PAQs). This searchable database allows the user to specify functional and temporal variables in order to identify items that match specific study objectives. The database has grown to include 113 questionnaires/surveys (PAQs). Summary tables of the PAQ items, as well as validation studies for 83 of the 113 PAQs, are also available on the Web site. Dr. David Berrigan (RFMMB) leads the project.
