Component Description

The Physical Activity questionnaire (variable name prefix PAQ) is based on the Global Physical Activity Questionnaire (GPAQ) and provides respondent-level interview data on physical activities.

Eligible Sample

Participants aged 2 years and over were eligible. Questions asked varied by age group.

Interview Setting and Mode of Administration

PAQ was asked in the home, by trained interviewers, using the Computer Assisted Personal Interview (CAPI) system for persons 2 to 11 and 16 or more years of age. For respondents aged 12 to 15 years of age, PAQ was asked in the Mobile Examination Center (MEC).

Persons 12 years of age and older and emancipated minors were interviewed directly. A proxy provided information for survey participants who were under 12 years of age and for individuals who could not answer the questions themselves.

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 data was collected as part of the household interview for respondents 2 to 11 and 16 or more years, the interview sample weights should be used in their analysis. However, if the data is merged with exam data, the exam sample weights should be used. Analysis of the questionnaire for 12 to 15 year olds should use the exam sample weights as the questionnaire was 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.
