PURPOSE The Compendium of Physical Activities was developed to enhance the comparability of results across studies using self-report physical activity (PA) and is used to quantify the energy cost of a wide variety of PA. We provide the second update of the Compendium, called the 2011 Compendium. METHODS The 2011 Compendium retains the previous coding scheme to identify the major category headings and specific PA by their rate of energy expenditure in MET. Modifications in the 2011 Compendium…

A Youth Compendium of Physical Activities: Activity Codes and Metabolic Intensities

This Youth Compendium of Physical Activities uses pediatric data exclusively, addresses the age dependency of METy, and imputes missing METy values and thus represents advancement in physical activity research and practice.

Development of physical activity classification table for Koreans: using the Compendium of physical activities in the United States

To set the estimated energy requirement (EER) in Dietary Reference Intakes for Koreans (KDRI), we need the coefficient by physical activity stage, as determined by the physical activity level(PAL).

A compendium of energy costs of physical activities for individuals who use manual wheelchairs.

The compendium of wheelchair-related activities can be used to enhance scoring of physical activity surveys and to promote the benefits of activity in this population.

Utility of the Youth Compendium of Physical Activities

The Youth Compendium is presented and related materials are presented to facilitate measurement of the energy cost of nearly 200 physical activities in children and youth and has application for a wide variety of audiences.

Design and Evaluation of a Computer-Based 24-Hour Physical Activity Recall (cpar24) Instrument

Evaluation of a computer-based 24-hour physical activity recall instrument with respect to the recalled 24-h period shows that the cpar24 is a valid and reproducible Web-based measure of physical activity in adults.

Context of Physical Activity in a Representative Sample of Adults.

Lifestyle activities are more frequently reported than sports and/or recreational activities and a multidomain approach is needed to better understand and increase MVPA in diverse populations of US adults.

Design and Evaluation of a Computer-Based 24-Hour Physical Activity Recall ( cpar 24 ) Instrument

Evaluated data show that the cpar24 is a valid and reproducible Web-based measure of physical activity in adults and shows modest to high intraclass correlation coefficients for sedentary, light, and moderate to vigorous activities.

How can Physical Activity be Measured in Primary Health Care ?

The tools that could be useful in primary health care due to their ease in application and efficiency are the following: Rapid Assessment of Physical Activity (RAPA), IPAQ (International Physical activity Questionnaire), and the Spanish short version of the Minnesota Leisure Time Physical Activity Questionnaire (VREM).

Can Yoga Meet the Requirement of the Physical Activity Guideline of India? A Descriptive Review

The compendium of physical activities should add a separate category for energy expenditure by yoga to help build-up newer exercise formats involving yogic physical activities to comply with the daily-recommended PA dose.

Compendium of physical activities: an update of activity codes and MET intensities.

We provide an updated version of the Compendium of Physical Activities, a coding scheme that classifies specific physical activity (PA) by rate of energy expenditure. It was developed to enhance the

Linking the American Time Use Survey (ATUS) and the Compendium of Physical Activities: methods and rationale.

The process of metabolic coding of the ATUS by linking it with the Compendium of Physical Activities can make important contributions to the understanding of American's time spent in health-related physical activity.

Development of a Compendium of Energy Expenditures for Youth

The Compendium of Energy Expenditures for Youth is useful to researchers and practitioners interested in identifying physical activity and energy expenditure values in children and adolescents in a variety of settings.

Compendium of physical activities: classification of energy costs of human physical activities.

A coding scheme is presented for classifying physical activity by rate of energy expenditure, i.e., by intensity, and general use of this coding system would enhance the comparability of results across studies using self reports of physical activity.

Assigning energy costs to activities in children: a review and synthesis.

This study has provided a literature base and analytical support for a compendium of energy costs for use with children with energy costs expressed as METs using adults METs combined with child resting metabolic rates as the best existing technique to assign EE to children when measured values are not available.

Determining metabolic equivalent values of physical activities for persons with paraplegia

To be able to measure PA-related EE of a disability subpopulation using the CPA accurately, a supplement that accounts for the impact of different types of activities and the EE characteristics of the subpopulation must be developed.

International physical activity questionnaire: 12-country reliability and validity.

Considering the diverse samples in this study, IPAQ has reasonable measurement properties for monitoring population levels of physical activity among 18- to 65-yr-old adults in diverse settings.

Accelerometer output and MET values of common physical activities.

This study provides valuable information about data collection, metabolic responses, and accelerometer output for common physical activities in a diverse participant sample, and linear regression models are inappropriate for accurately predicting METs from accelerometers output.

Assessment of habitual physical activity by a seven-day recall in a community survey and controlled experiments.

The physical activity recall provides useful estimates of habitual physical activity for research in epidemiologic and health education studies, and changes in energy expenditure were associated with changes in maximal oxygen uptake and body fatness.

Energy costs of physical activities in children and adolescents.

Energy expenditure per kilogram of body mass at rest or during exercise is greater in children than adults and varies with pubertal status, thus using the definition of a MET in the compendium of physical activities without adjustment is inadequate for energy estimation in children.
