van der Ploeg et al. 2010
- Relation between IPAQ estimates of total time walked per week and a CSA accelerometer worn for 7 consecutive days as an objective measure of time per week spent in moderate-intensity physical activity (Spearman correlation coefficients)
- 3 Validity samples totaling 728 Individuals, who reported no other moderate-intensity activity besides walking on 3 different versions of the IPAQ; mean age 34 ± 11 to 40 ± 13 years.
- Summary Results
