About This Database

You are browsing a database of standardized questionnaires that ask about respondents' walking and bicycling habits.

The survey on this page is presented for informational purposes only, and is not intended to be filled out by visitors to this Web site.

The Applied Research Program maintains this database, but, except where noted, did not create and does not maintain the questionnaires themselves. For more information about a specific questionnaire, please contact its author(s). When possible, we cite the source of each questionnaire near the top of the page.

Select the number that best describes your overall level of physical activity for the previous 6 months:

0 = avoid walking or exertion, e.g. always use the elevator, drive when possible instead of walking
1 = light activity: walk for pleasure, routinely use stairs, occasionally exercise sufficiently to cause heavy breathing or perspiration.
