Activities Completed over Time in 24-hours (ACT24) is a web-based previous-day recall instrument that was designed to estimate daily summary values for physical activity and sedentary behavior, including energy expenditure, time spent sitting and in different types and intensities of physical activity.
These maps use combined data from 2017 through 2020 from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. Survey respondents were classified as physically inactive if they reported no physical activity outside their regular job in the last month.
Provides easy access to national and state level CDC data on a range of key indicators of health and well-being for older adults, including caregiving, subjective cognitive decline, screenings and vaccinations, and mental health. These indicators provide a snapshot of currently available surveillance information and can be useful for prioritization and evaluation of public health interventions.
The nation’s premier system of health-related telephone surveys that collect state data about U.S. residents regarding their health-related risk behaviors, chronic health conditions, and use of preventive services.
Publicly available datasets relevant to childhood obesity research, including obesity-related health behaviors, outcomes, and determinants; and policies and environmental factors.
A source of state-level data on adults with disabilities. Access information on six functional disability types: cognitive, hearing, mobility, vision, self-care, and independent living. Explore data on more than 30 health topics - including smoking, obesity, heart disease, and diabetes - among adults with or without disabilities.
Visualize data and locate information critical to understanding minority health, health disparities, and their determinants. Data are collected from public health surveillance systems by using either their published reports or public use files.
Eight common measures that can collect data to implement plans that connect park and trail infrastructure to public health goals.
A biomarker validation study of internet-based and conventional self-reports for assessing diet and physical activity.
A searchable database of diet and physical activity measures relevant to childhood obesity research.
These modules are designed to complement the Measures Registry and Measures Registry User Guides and assist researchers and practitioners with choosing the best measures across the four domains of the Measures Registry: individual diet, food environment, individual physical activity and physical activity environment.
User guides to help researchers select measures for studies in obesity among youth, including an overview of measurement, principles of measurement selection, case studies and resources.
A measurement system that evaluates and monitors the physical, mental, and social effects experienced by adults and children living with neurological conditions.
A catalog of recommended standard measures of phenotypes and environmental exposures for use in biomedical research. This includes common data elements for tobacco regulatory research, substance abuse and addiction, mental health research, sickle cell disease research, and social determinants of health.
Database of questionnaire items for standardized items concerning physical activity.
Links to physical activity resources that may be of interest to investigators, but is not exhaustive.
Science Analysis System (SAS) code is available for analyzing Actigraph 7164 Physical Activity Monitor (PAM) data from the 2003–2004 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). These programs are written to import and analyze accelerometer data downloaded from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). Those who wish to use these programs with data downloaded directly from Actigraph 7164 accelerometers used in a different study must first convert the data into the appropriate format and merge the records from multiple accelerometers.
