Resumé

PURPOSE: Understanding factors that influence accurate assessment of physical activity (PA) and sedentary behavior (SB) is important to measurement development, epidemiologic studies, and interventions. This study examined agreement between self-reported (International Physical Activity Questionnaire - Long Form, IPAQ-LF) and accelerometry-based estimates of PA and SB across six countries, and identified correlates of between-method agreement.

METHODS: Self-report and objective (accelerometry-based) PA and SB data were collected in 2002-2011 from 3,865 adult participants in eight cities from six countries (Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Spain, UK, and USA). Between-method relative agreement (correlation) and absolute disagreement (mean difference between conceptually- and intensity-matched IPAQ-LF and accelerometry-based PA and SB variables) were estimated. Also, socio-demographic characteristics and PA patterns were examined as correlates of between-method agreement.

RESULTS: Observed relative agreement (relationships of IPAQ-LF with accelerometry-based PA and SB variables) was small to moderate (r=0.05-0.37) and was moderated by socio-demographic (age, sex, weight status, education) and behavioral (PA-types) factors. The absolute disagreement was large, with participants self-reporting higher PA intensity and total time in moderate-to-vigorous PA than accelerometry. Also, self-reported sitting time was lower than accelerometry-based sedentary behavior. After adjusting for socio-demographic and behavioral factors, the absolute disagreement between pairs of IPAQ-LF and accelerometry-based PA variables remained significantly different across cities/countries.

CONCLUSIONS: Present findings suggest systematic cultural and/or linguistic and socio-demographic differences in absolute agreement between the IPAQ-LF and accelerometry-based PA and SB variables. These results have implications for the interpretation of international PA and SB data and correlates/determinants studies. They call for further efforts to improve such measures.This is an open access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 3.0 License, where it is permissible to download and share the work provided it is properly cited.
