BACKGROUND The Canadian Health Measures Survey uses accelerometry to collect physical activity and sedentary behaviour data. Between cycles 2 and 3, a transition was made from 60-second to 15-second epochs in accelerometry data for children aged 3 to 5. This study examines the impact of epoch length on physical activity and sedentary behaviour outcomes. DATA AND METHODS Twenty-nine children aged 3 to 5 wore two accelerometers at the same time, one initialized to collect data in 60-second… CONTINUE READING
