"Physical activity in the United States measured by accelerometer"
Troiano, RP. MEDICINE AND SCIENCE IN SPORTS AND EXERCISE 2008 Vol. 40 Iss. 1 p. 181 - 188
Database of studies
"Profile of physical activity behaviors among Swedish women aged 56-75 years"
Orsini, N. SCANDINAVIAN JOURNAL OF MEDICINE & SCIENCE IN SPORTS 2008 Vol. 18 Iss. 1 p. 95 - 101
List of studies
