Table of Energy Expenditures for Calculation of Kilocalories

The following kilocalorie expenditure values are assigned in SAS programs HP98_KCAL.sas, HP95_KCAL.sas, HP91_KCAL.sas, HP90_KCAL.sas, and HP85_KCAL.sas. All variables associated with the activities are shown.

In: National Center for Health Statistics: Assessing Physical Fitness and Physical Activity in Population-based Surveys. Thomas F. Drury, ed. DHHS Pub. No..(PHS) 89-1253. Public Health Service. Washington. U.S. Government Printing Office. 1989.

2 STRETCH asked only from 1991 forward. Heart rate (STRT _H) not asked but imputed.

3 The question wording differed between the two set of questions. In 1985 and 1990, the question asked about "swimming or water exercises." The value assigned for large heart rate change for these years was "7" instead of the "9" shown here. The question in 1991 and later asked about "swimming for exercise."

4 GOLF_M, GOLF_H, BOWL_M, AND BOWL_H: Duration and heart rate changes were asked in 1985 and 1990, but not in 1991, 1995, or 1998. For these later years, duration was imputed: BOWL_M= 90 minutes; GOLF_M=120 minutes, and heart rate was assigned the lowest intensity.

5 The skiing question did not specify type of skiing in 1985 or 1990, but duration and intensity were asked during these years. The variables for the 1985 and 1990 recodes are renamed to SKI_DH for convenience, although they are not identical to the variables of the same name found in the later years. In 1991, 1995, and 1998, specific types of skiing were asked: SKI_DH (downhill skiing) SKI_CR(cross-country), SKI_WA (water)], but duration and intensity were asked only for cross-country. Values for duration for the other two types were imputed: SKI_DH=120 minutes and SKI_WA=120 minutes. Heart rate intensity was coded to unknown and treated accordingly in creating the recodes.
