Table 4 Associations of NWQ-CS with accelerometry- and log-of-walks estimates

From: Measuring walking within and outside the neighborhood in Chinese elders: reliability and validity

NWQ-CS vs. accelerometry-based variable r NWQ-CS vs. accelerometry-based variable r
Total walking (min/wk) vs. step counts 0.48c Total walking (min/wk) vs. LVPA (min/wk) 0.50c
Total walking (min/wk) vs. MVPA (min/wk) 0.26a Total walking (min/wk) vs. mean activity level (counts/min) 0.53c
NWQ-CS vs. log-of-walks-based variable r NWQ-CS vs. log-of-walks-based variable r
Walking for transport within neighborhood (frequency/wk) 0.43c Walking for transport within neighborhood (min/wk) 0.56c
Walking for transport outside neighborhood (frequency/wk) 0.51c Walking for transport outside neighborhood (min/wk) 0.41c
Walking for recreation within neighborhood (frequency/wk) 0.83c Walking for recreation within neighborhood (min/wk) 0.68c
Walking for recreation outside neighborhood (frequency/wk) 0.90c Walking for recreation outside neighborhood (min/wk) 0.81c

  1. NWQ-CS = Neighborhood Walking Questionnaire - Chinese version for Seniors; r = correlation coefficient; min = minutes; wk = week; PA = physical activity; MVPA = moderate-to-vigorous physical activity; LVPA = light-to-vigorous physical activity. Positively skewed variables were log-transformed. a p < .05; b p < .01; c p < .001
