disability subgroups? For example, exercise guidelines typically include only individuals with mild or moderate forms of relapsing-remitting MS ( Latimer-Cheung et al., 2013 ). To address these questions, this study involved a secondary analysis of exercise interventions that were retrieved for a prior

The 2003 Bureau of Labor Statistics American Time Use Survey (ATUS) contains 438 distinct primary activity variables that can be analyzed with regard to how time is spent by Americans. The Compendium of Physical Activities is used to code physical activities derived from various surveys, logs, diaries, etc to facilitate comparison of coded intensity levels across studies.


This article describes the methods, challenges, and rationale for linking Compendium estimates of physical activity intensity (METs, metabolic equivalents) with all activities reported in the 2003 ATUS.


The assigned ATUS intensity levels are not intended to compute the energy costs of physical activity in individuals. Instead, they are intended to be used to identify time spent in activities broadly classified by type and intensity. This function will complement public health surveillance systems and aid in policy and health-promotion activities. For example, at least one of the future projects of this process is the descriptive epidemiology of time spent in common physical activity intensity categories.


The process of metabolic coding of the ATUS by linking it with the Compendium of Physical Activities can make important contributions to our understanding of American’s time spent in health-related physical activity.

). A secondary analysis by low ( n  = 10; <40 mg/day; 22 ± 12 mg/day) and moderate/high ( n  = 6; >130 mg/day; 231 ± 88 mg/day) habitual caffeine consumption was performed. Two participants whose habitual caffeine intake fell between the <40 and >130 mg/day cutoffs were removed prior to the secondary

In addition, secondary analysis of traditional factors of age and aerobic fitness revealed significant differences in cfPWV in seated and standing desk participants. Chronic

Hispanic and non-Hispanic 3- to 5-year-old children using a cross-sectional secondary analysis of the 2012 NHANES National Youth Fitness Survey. Consistent with the Stodden and colleagues' conceptual model and a recent study ( 17 , 37 ), we found that locomotor and object control skills served as unique

SIPsmartER served as the comparison condition for this study, and participants were educated on SSB reduction and not PA behaviors; however, a health intervention of any kind has potential to influence health behaviors, including PA behaviors. 64 Finally, this secondary analysis was not explicitly powered
