Abstract (englisch):
The purpose of this study is to investigate factors that influence physical activity (PA) measured by accelerometers in a representative sample of children and adolescents in Germany and determine whether these factors are correlates of PA. To our knowledge it is the first time that objectively measured PA data is available for a representative sample in Germany.
Methods:
2,278 children and adolescents between the age of 6 and 17 (47.1% male, mean age: 12.52 years) wore either ActiGraph GT3x+ or ActiGraph wGT3X-BT as part of the examination throughout the nationwide MoMo survey “Wave 2” (2014-2017) [Woll, A. et al. (2017). Journal of Health, 2(S3), 66–73.]. The participants wore the device during all waking hours on 8 consecutive days. Accelerometer data was downloaded via ActiLife software and further processed using MATLAB. Influencing factors were measured during the MoMo examination (age, BMI) or as part of the MoMo physical activity questionnaire (MoMo-PAQ): socio-economic status (SES), migration background, media use). Statistical analysis for the cross-sectional data was performed using SPSS. The investigated dependant variable was moderate to vigorous PA (MVPA) per day. ... mehr
