Table 4 Comparison of GPPAQ questionnaire information and MVPA from accelerometry

From: Evaluation of reliability and validity of the General Practice Physical Activity Questionnaire (GPPAQ) in 60–74 year old primary care patients

   Total weekly MVPA in 10 min bouts Achieved DH Guidelines for physical activity1
Baseline standard GPPAQ Physical Activity Index N Mean (sd) N (%)
 Inactive 152 91 (112) 36 (24 %)
 Moderately inactive 35 84 (91) 8 (23 %)
 Moderately active 55 96 (111) 12 (22 %)
 Active 47 99 (111) 13 (28 %)
Baseline standard GPPAQ-WALK Physical Activity Index2    
 Inactive 123 80 (97) 27 (22 %)
 Moderately inactive 30 85 (93) 6 (20 %)
 Moderately active 44 86 (108) 9 (20 %)

  1. 1. DH Guidelines recommend at least 150 min of MVPA in bouts of at least 10 mins
  2. 2. GPPAQ-Walk additionally classifies those who walk ≥3 h per week at a “brisk” or “fast” pace as active
