Summary 

This nationally-representative study was conducted as a follow up to a previous IPAQ validity study conducted by researchers at the Karolinska Institute in 2001-2002. Participants were again instructed to wear an accelerometer to measure physical activity for a period of several days; these measured results were compared to the self-reported physical activity documented through self-report using the IPAQ.
