Validation Studies of the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition-Norfolk (EPIC2) Physical Activity Questions

Wareham et al. 2002

See reference #28

Methods
Relationship between ERIC-2 variables and Physical Activity Index (PAI), and four separate episodes of 4-day heart-rate monitoring (to obtain EE)and four repeated measures of sub-maximum oxygen uptake (to obtain mean VO2 max) (Pearson correlations adjusted for age and sex)
Sample
84 men (mean age 58.8 years) and 89 women (mean age 55.4 years) enrolled in European Prospec-tive Investiga-tion into Cancer Study-Norfolk cohort (EPIC-Norfolk)
Summary Results
  EE (kj/h) Mean VO2 max PAR >5 (%)
EPIC-2 Variables:
