A product of the National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research
The purpose of this registry is to promote the consistent use of common measures and research methods across childhood obesity prevention and research at the individual, community, and population levels.
Obesity and public health researchers need standard measures to describe, monitor, and evaluate interventions, particularly policy and environmental interventions, and factors and outcomes at all levels of the socio-ecological model. NCCOR hopes that this registry web tool facilitates access to available measures, helps identify gaps in measures, and encourages the development of new measures.
What are diet and physical activity measures?
Measures are defined broadly as tools and methodologies to assess individual diet, physical activity, and the environments in which these behaviors occur. Examples of measures in the registry include questionnaires, instruments, diaries, logs, electronic devices, direct observations of people or environments, protocols, and analytic techniques.
