Component Description

The physical activity questionnaire (variable name prefix PAQ) is based on the Global Physical Activity Questionnaire (GPAQ) and includes questions related to daily activities, leisure time activities, and sedentary activities. Additional information about the GPAQ can be obtained at the World Health Organization website.

Eligible Sample

All survey participants aged 2 and over were eligible. Proxy respondents answered the questions for 2-11 year olds.

Interview Setting and Mode of Administration

For respondents aged 2 to 11 and 16 and over, the questions were asked before the physical examination, in the home, using the Computer-Assisted Personal Interview (CAPI) system.

For respondents aged 12 to 15, these questions were asked at the mobile examination center, by trained interviewers, using the Computer-Assisted Personal Interview (CAPI) system as part of the Mobile Examination Center (MEC) interview. The questions asked varied by age group. The target group in the codebook indicates which age groups were asked which questions.

Data Processing and Editing

Limited editing was done on the data. Respondents who reported an average of 24 hours or more per day of activity had their time variables (PAD615, PAD630, PAD645, PAD660, PAD675, PAD680) set to missing. Users should carefully inspect the data for other values they may consider too high.

Analytic Notes

Since the PAQ questions for respondents 2 to 11 and 16 and over were asked in the household interview, the interview sample weights should be used in their analysis. However, if the data is joined with data from the MEC, the MEC sample weights should be used. Analysis of the PAQ questions for 12 to 15 year olds should use the MEC sample weights as the questions were asked in the MEC.

Suggested metabolic equivalent (MET) scores for the activities listed in this file are included in Appendix 1.

Please refer to the NHANES Analytic Guidelines and the on-line NHANES Tutorial for further details on the use of sample weights and other analytic issues.
