Abstract (englisch):
"Background: Physical activity (PA) has benefcial efects on health and health-related quality of life (HRQoL), which
is a protective factor of illness and mortality. The purpose of this examination was to investigate if self-reported and
device-based measures of PA were related to HRQoL in adolescents.
Methods: Participants (N=1565; 54.3% female; Mage=14.37 years, SDage=1.99) were recruited from 167 sample
points across Germany. Adolescents self-reported their PA, supplemented by a 1-week examination of device-based
PA using accelerometry. Additionally, they completed the multidimensional KIDSCREEN-27 to assess HRQoL.
Results: Results showed that self-reported PA was correlated with overall HRQoL, Physical Well-Being, Psychological
Well-Being, Social Support & Peers, and School Environment, whereas device-based PA was only correlated with Physi‑
cal as well as Psychological Well-Being. Further, self-reported PA signifcantly predicted all facets of HRQoL except for
Autonomy and Parent Relations, whereas device-based PA solely heightened the amount of explained variance in the
Physical Well-Being subscale.
Conclusions: Findings demonstrate the importance of self-reported PA as it is related to almost all facets of HRQoL.
