New NCCOR Measures Registry User Guides: Selecting the Best Measures – A Two-Part Series

NCCOR launched the Measures Registry User Guides in February to help childhood obesity researchers and practitioners choose appropriate measures for their research and evaluation efforts. The User Guides build on NCCOR’s Measures Registry — a free, online repository of scientific articles about measures. The four User Guides focus on core areas of childhood obesity research: individual diet, food environment, individual physical activity, and physical activity environment. The User Guides provide an overview of measurement, describe general principles of measurement selection, present case studies that walk users through the process of using the Measures Registry, and direct researchers and practitioners to additional resources.
