Table 4 Differences between accelerometer and the Global Physical Activity Questionnaire measurements based on physical activity level

From: Convergent validity: agreement between accelerometry and the Global Physical Activity Questionnaire in college-age Saudi men

Variable Very active (n = 32) Active (n = 20) Non-active (n = 9) p value
∆ MVPA (min/week) 94.5 (−130.5 to 292.0) −12.5 (−129.5 to 89.0) −74.0 (−471.0 to 61.0) 0.840
∆ Sedentary time (min/day) 205.2 (89.5–364.4) 157.7 (48.8–310.9) 201.6 (−93.0 to 436.0) 0.052
  1.  data measured using accelerometer-data reported using GPAQ. Data expressed as median (1st–3rd quartiles)
  2. GPAQ Global Physical Activity Questionnaire, MVPA moderate-vigorous physical activity, Very active ≥250 min MVPA/week, Active 150–249 min MVPA/week, non-active <150 min MVPA/week
