Primary use / Purpose: 

This survey was designed to measure self-reported physical activity and its correlates in women from diverse ethnic groups.

Background: 

Despite the well-established benefits of physical exercise, many adult females do not obtain the recommended amounts. Obstacles to physical activity occur at multiple levels, including at the individual, interpersonal, and environmental levels. This survey represents a measure of assessing the self-reported physical activity levels of women from diverse ethnic backgrounds and some of their correlates.

Psychometrics: 

Moderate to substantial test reliability for this instrument has been recently demonstrated (Evenson et al., 2006).
