Research Domain Information
Measure Name:

Cumulative Lifetime Physical Activity

Release Date:

December 30, 2009

Definition

Measure to assess lifetime strenuous and moderate physical activity

Purpose

Lifetime physical activity has been linked to cancer risk as well as to other conditions, such as diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. Assessing lifetime physical activity will help quantify the modification of either increased or decreased risk. It is one of the most important modifiable risk factors for major causes of mortality.
