The EPAQ2 is a self-reported questionnaire that collects past year information on physical activity in a disaggregated way (by behaviour type and domain) such that the information may be re-aggregated according the dimension of physical activity of interest. It is longer than the original EPIC PAQ, known as "short EPIC", and EPAQ2 is therefore sometimes called "long EPAQ". The questionnaire consists of three domains: activity at home, work and recreation. Questions are closed rather than open-ended. It was originally designed as a comprehensive physical activity questionnaire for implementation in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer Study - Norfolk cohort.
