NHANES 2011-2014 Physical Activity Monitor data – now FREE!

Richard P. Troiano, Ph.D.
CAPT, U.S. Public Health Service
NIH Program Director, Risk Factor Assessment Branch of the Epidemiology and Genomics Research Program in NCI’s Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS)

Dr. Troiano worked with the NHANES to implement the use of devices in the survey to obtain objective measures of participants’ physical activity-related movement and sleep, as well as body strength.  His presentation will be dedicated to the release of the activity monitor data for 2011-2014.

Originally presented October 8th, 2020 

The objective of this session is to facilitate a mutual understanding of physical behaviors (physical activity, sedentary behavior, sleep) across scientific disciplines and promote collaboration on integrated research. Presentations will cover the basic view and the ‘key elements’ of physical behaviors from a panel of experts in public and occupational health, physical activity and  sports medicine, exercise science and clinical and rehabilitation science.

Assessing Physical Activity for Beginners – in the view of different perspectives

Facilitator: Associate professor Örjan Ekblom, The Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences

Originally presented October 16th, 2020

The objective of this session is to introduce device-based assessment of physical activity pattern and provide details for a first data collection. The presentation will cover rationale and perspective of using accelerometry for your studies as well as a crash course on how the data looks like and traditional analysis.

Compositional data analysis (CoDA): The whys, the hows and future applications of CoDA in physical behavior research

Facilitator and speakers
