Publicaties en materialen


Activity Questionnaire for Adults and Adolescents (AQuAA) is een vragenlijst om lichamelijke activiteit van adolescenten (12-18 jaar) en volwassenen te meten. Het materiaal bestaat uit twee vragenlijsten: één voor adolescenten en één voor volwassenen.


De respondent vult de AQuAA schriftelijk in. Per activiteit geeft de respondent aan hoeveel van de afgelopen zeven dagen de activiteit plaatsvond en hoeveel tijd de respondent daar gemiddeld per dag mee bezig was. Bij de onderdelen vervoer naar school of werk, vrije tijd en sport vult de respondent in hoe inspannend de activiteit was, namelijk licht, gemiddeld of zwaar. Bij de onderdelen lichamelijke activiteit op werk of school en huishoudelijke activiteiten is de intensiteit van de activiteit voorgestructureerd in deze drie categorieën.
