See reference #121

Relation between Australian Women's Activity Survey (AWAS) variables and MTI ActiGraph accelerometer measured activity intensity levels in minutes per week using both Freedson and Swartz cut points (Spearmanís correlation coefficients)
75 women with young children; mean age 33 ± 5 years.
