Validation Studies of the Kaiser Physical Activity Survey (KPAS)

Ainsworth et al. 2000

See reference #34

Relationship between KPAS physical Activity Scores (PAS) and Caltrac accelerometer and PA records; cardio respiratory fitness (VO2 peak) and % body fat; PA records for two 7-d periods, separated by 1 month (Spearman correlations)
50 women; 20-60 years of age
Summary Results
  KPAS-PAS Occupational Active Living
VO2 peak 0.04 0.37
% body fat -0.06 -0.41
PA record 0.35 .22
Caltrac-Kcal/d 0.30 -0.21
MET/min/d 0.16 0.34
PA record:
-walking 0.50  
-walk/cycle transport   0.04
-walk + 15 min   0.33
-bicycle+15 min   0.43

correlations>0.28 are p < 0.05; correlations>0.35 are p < 0.01

Summary Legend:
PAS = KPAS Physical Activity Scores
VO2 peak = Cardio respiratory fitness
