Validation Studies of the Arizona Activity Frequency Questionnaire (AAFQ)

Staten et al. 2001

See reference #02

Relation between 28-d and 7-d AAFQ and Physical activity energy expenditure (PAEE) and Total energy Expenditure (TEE) calculated from DLW and measured RMR (Pearson correlations) -- NS between 7-d and 28 dy AAFQ
35 sedentary women; 31-60 years of age
Summary Results
Expenditure Measure (kJ/d) Mean+SD
RMR 4267 ± 687
DLW TEE 9847 ± 2555
DLW PAEE 5578 ± 2084
28-d AAFQ -total MET 44.5 ± 10.1
PAEE-indirect calorimetry 3645 ± 1916
TEE--indirect calorimetry 7912 ± 2196
TEE reporting accuracy (AAFQic vs DLW) -17.8 ± 20.6
-PAEE- Miffen et al. 4838 ± 2498
-TEE-Miffen et al. 10,544 ± 2814
-TEE reporting accuracy (AAFQmif vs DLW) 9.5 ± 24.6
-PAEE MET conversion 6117 ± 3270
-TEE MET conversion 13,445 ± 4342
-TEE reporting accuracy (AAFQmet vs DLW) 37.3 ± 29.0

The AAFQ TEE was significantly correlated with TEE from DLW when the RMR was calculated using the Mifflin et al. equation or MET conversion technique (r2=0.45 and r2=0.58). P-values not given in table.

Summary Legend:
PAEE = Physical activity energy expenditure
TEE = Total energy Expenditure
