Relatedly, we were also not able to characterize sedentariness. Our findings actually highlight the importance of capturing this in the survey

adults and individuals with dementia ( Berry et al., 2007 ; Browne et al., 2011 ). Combining qualitative research methods with objective measurements of sedentary behavior, referred to as triangulation, micro-macro link, or a mixed-methods approach ( Erzberger & Prein, 1997 ), offers the opportunity to

Objective measurements should quantify the intended construct to be valid and useful for clinical decision making. For a measurement of eccentric muscle strength to be valid, it must quantify muscle

-analysis revealed that the effect of parent–child PA correlates were greater with objective measurement, compared with those with self-rated questionnaires. 19 However, even in the studies with objective measurement, results ranged from having no significance 23 – 26 to having small 27 – 29 to large correlations
