Roeykens et al. 1998

See reference #45

Methods
Relation between MOSPA-Q items by time scores (i.e. WORK) and EE spent in activity category (i.e. KWORK) and biometrical and physiological parameters: BMI, VO2 peak, LBM, %BF (Spearman rank order correlation coefficients)
Sample
167 physical education and physical therapy alumni.
