Validation Studies of the Historical Leisure Activity Questionnaire (HLAQ)

Chasan-Taber 2002

See reference #30

Methods
Relationship between Modified HLAQ (to collect past year) and four 1-wk activity logs (PAL); attenuated (r) and deattenuated (rd) Pearson coefficients between each questionnaire and the average of up to four 1 wk PALs
Sample
131 women
Summary Results
  Baseline HLAQ and average of PALs Follow-up HLAQ and average of PALs
  r rd r rd
Total activity 0.24* 0.28* 0.26* 0.29*

Methods
Relation of HLAQ and MNLTPAQ and Quantitative ultrasound (QUS), assessment of bone speed of sound (SOS) and broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA) and bone mineral density (BMD)
ANOVA
Sample
393 women; 45-53 years of age
Summary Results

Relation between HPAS and Baseline Bone measures:
Age period (years) Area Density
14-21 0.14* 0.10
22-34 0.09 0.14*
35-50 0.14* 0.17**
50+ 0.06 0.09
Total historical activity 0.16* 0.16
