Background

There is large variation in how physical activity self-report instruments have been developed, the domains and content they measure, and how to interpret the derived data. The variation between instruments may partially be attributed to the absence of a standardized conceptual framework for physical activity as a complex and multidimensional behavior. A framework for physical activity with agreed-upon definitions has been developed to guide instrument construction, implementation, interpretation, and application.
