The YPAQ lists 47 different activities with participants requested to self-report the frequency and duration of each activity for both week and weekend days over the past 7 d. Therefore, the YPAQ assesses mode, frequency, and duration of physical activity and sedentary activities throughout all domains, including school time and leisure time over the past 7 d. The CPAQ is very similar to the YPAQ but parentally reported and includes activities specific to young children, such as ‘‘playing in a playhouse.’’ The CPAQ assesses mode, frequency, and duration of physical activity and sedentary activities throughout all domains over the past 7 d.
