Contribution to the surveillance and measurement of physical activity and sedentary behaviors

Abstract : Physical activity and sedentary behaviors are major health determinants and are being surveyed worldwide. Objective: The aim of this thesis was to contribute to the surveillance and measurement of physical activity and sedentary behaviors. Method: This thesis includes four studies. The first study analyzes and discusses the present situation of French national surveillance studies. The second study presents the results from the first French report card on physical activity for children and adolescents. The third study discusses the validity and reliability properties of the French version of the Global Physical Activity Questionnaire (GPAQ). The fourth study examines the content of questionnaires measuring sedentary behaviors. Results: Studies 1 and 2 reported measurement issues impairing the overall data quality, inter-study comparisons and survey of changes over time. The study of GPAQ reported limited but acceptable reliability and validity for the measurement of physical activity and sedentary time in France. Finally, the systematic review on sedentary behaviors questionnaires reported large differences in the population targeted (ex: adults, youth, elderly), recall frame (ex: previous day, last 7 days, last month), the number of item (from 1 to more than 100), and the sedentary behaviors characteristics measured (from only sitting time to up to 27 sedentary behaviors). Conclusion: The work realized during this thesis allows the formulation of recommendations to improve the surveillance of physical activity and sedentary behaviors in France
